Poplar Ave. Memphis, TN
United States
35° 6' 34.1208" N, 89° 53' 20.3316" W

Manmade stars seen through

ash shadows blanketing

this city made numb,

the unmaking of man,

thread unwinding from its spool

too quick to remember.


Creation bleeds oil-black,

seeping into the pavement,

never knew till it was too late,

isn’t it ironic?
