Between Lines

So many words remain unspoken

Kitty cat ticks on the wall

Kitchen kitsch, marking time unbroken

Suburban sprawl completed by strip mall

~

Breeding ground of 1990s punk

When did they sell out

Former bohemians now in a funk

Hipsters who wore floral dress and a pout

~

Magic of a different time and place

Another year will close

Older. Wiser? Nope just age’s race

A family portrait pose

~

What do you read between lines

Walking down boulevard of broken dreams

Slept through September; covered in vines

Wake us up with enlightened schemes
