we are slashes of color on a torn canvasMature

we are slashes of color on a torn canvas,
overturned and left in the corner to gather cobwebs
and die the slow, agonizing death of things forgotten -

you can call 911 all you’d like but footprints fade in time
and no one remembers the road you used to live on
now that you’ve moved away.

The End
