13.50 Version

Wayward Motions

The bread crumbles

beneath my chapped


"All for one and one for all"

Gray strands of smoke seeps

into an empty corridor.

A lifeless statue haunts

a present past.

"Liberty and justice for all"

A drop of wine, slips from

my parched lips and falls to the

cemented floor.  

"Do this in remembrance of me"

An ancient artifact lies half

burned beneath a layer of dust.

Black lust smeared over blood

and blue, and just a speck

of bone white shows through.

"When in the course of human events it becomes necessary"

Time threatens the existence

of this place.

Smiles become wrinkles,

Tears turn to memories,

Hair is worn thin.

A bell without a tongue

lies deserted in this

cacophonic tomb.

It is the epitaph longed

to be read.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all humans were created to love."
