The Great Believers

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 19, 2010 by dc

We teased the future,
Took bites of apples
And threw huge chunks away,

Even the sparrows on the fence
Believed in us,
Gathering in song like clockwork,

They sang like there was a meaning,
Clouds parted with pride
And the sun swam with feeling.

Now just the waste
And the idiots
Dance.
