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
