the garden gate’s remark

Back along the ridge
down the half hidden path
murky and lined with the weeds of regret

Someone’s house in the woods
Someone’s past life lost in loneliness

The roof caved in
the front door missing
a broken face
a mouth of the past
the window agape

a tattered tongue of curtain
ripped and ragged
flicking in and out
over broken teeth of glass
speechless

Bang
the garden gate’s remark
to the passing summer wind
