as the city in the womb passes away no one notices town hall is closing.that it is being broken in.to small pieces and laid bare on a table outside the sky.. the bank and its bankers . the gym with the pool . the pizza parlor known for its buzz . the coffee cafe . the flowering shop . the hotel with a few snoring men and a woman watching tv . downtown thinks it’s merely the night ..at such an odd hour.. a husband asks wife the trees feel the wind known unlike before and children seem sleepy more often than not. the playgrounds and birds go last and go least. the crust of the earth becomes softer than rocks. the river keeps running only no one can see that it's blind and receding that even the frogs have gone awry away.
