Nighttime Explorers


Nighttime explorers,
on a mission to survey
life after it’s dark.

Lack of sun tends to
make things appear more run down –
and more sinister.
The local garden
has a chair beneath an arch –
it’s missing the seat.

Thick bunches of plants
grow up over the sidewalk –
what’s lurking within?

Two homeless people
cart all of their possessions –
such a big burden.

Five shopping carts sit,
cast off individually –
no longer of use.

Spiky seed balls
litter much of the sidewalk –
spawn of demon trees.

Gas station numbers
toppled from the recent winds –
chipped and forgotten.

So much happening
in every direction –
take the time to look.
