Silent schoolyards

empty apartment blocks,

deserted neighbourhoods

untrodden streets

robbed of their vibrancy;

A peerless shining sky

blue,golden and bright

canopies their absence of echo;

Deserted runways,

empty departure lounges,

silent concourses

where a solitary figure

remains standing


at destination boards

signless and unflickering,

his eyes engulfed

in their amnesia.
