Behind the old family home

lies a forgotten pile

tangled nouns and verbs

some worn out from overuse

and some never touched

abandoned lives lay scattered

about the yard

like costumes from a play

whose run had ended

where have the actors gone

were their stories complete

dust blows softly over the afternoon

without the answers
