Ninth Street

Autumn in the big city, leaves crunching under feet while puppy love dreams are cast aside.

Ninth Street

Ninth Street and Two-Hundred South

I remember the haunted days
spent recklessly
in the corrupted years of youth,
us boys running bravely
through the applause of autumn’s leaves
crunching under hurried feet
as fall’s thinning shadows
filled our eyes,
a memory
made even more ghostly
under moonlight skies
casting puppy-love-dreams
over our shoulders
as the Frilly Nuns
over at the Sacred Heart Chapel
fluttered by,
one by one
eating sponge cakes
and hot buttered buns
while uttering words
that only un-numbered pages
in long-forgotten books
dare to remember.

I have been writing since the beginning of time it seems, not because I want to write, but because I have too. My favorite form of writing is poetry, all kinds and types of poetry.
