    UNOPENED BOOKS

     

    Night after night she sits naked on a

    unshared bed

    breathing in the cool air.

    The dreams of her youth

    lay scattered on the dark floor.

    Her hair hangs long across her shoulders

    and the soft pearl moon lights her form;

    not young, not old.

    The silence consumers her and she wishes

    for the release of a new day.

     

    Across town a half a world away,

    a streetlight shines through a

    bare window frame.

    It cast a pale yellow light

    on a empty bed with a picture of

    Jesus hanging at its head.

    The man stands as a silent witness

    to the night.  Half hidden by the shadows,

    the red glow of his cigarette lights

    his face; not young, not old.

    The wind moves the faded curtains  

    just so and they speak nothing at all.
