Remembering the Cool Ocean Breeze—Wea’ve Written Weakly

And you find yourself walking the darkened streets at night.

Past the elementary school you used to play in as a child.

Past the liquor store where you stole your first pack of smokes.

And the things seem somehow cleaner here in the dark

Like they had been waiting to see you back there someday,

Waiting to take you by the hand show you what you’ve missed.

I wrote this poem in response to the Wea’ve Written Weekly prompt on Skeptics Kaddish. This week’s prompt poem is “Waiting for the Dark” by A J Wilson.
