A City Left Behind

Who lived here?
Broken windows,
Cracked sidewalks,
Boarded buildings,
Tall grasses swaying their seeded tops above vacant lots.

Who loved here,
Married here,
Raised a family here?

A park remains,
littered and unkempt.
If you listen closely,
can you still hear
Stoned Soul Picnic?
Groovin' On a Sunday Afternoon?
Cowboys to Girls?
