The Long Afternoons
unknown

The clock
 1
grows weary
 2
of being watched
 3
Smoke from the
 4
bonfire of blue jeans
 5
hangs like a whisper
 6
in the old lady's tears
 7
a spark for memories
 8
she cannot burn
 9
 
 
Happiness feels
 10
too painful
 11
to remember
 12
but forgetting
 13
would take away
 14
all she has left
 15
waiting quietly
 16
for her turn
 17
throughout each
 18
long afternoon
 19
