the wind folds branches of trees
traffic lights change
cars stop people walk

i watch through the window
like a silent movie
the quiet of a vacant home

antique wall clock sounds rhythmically
it doesn’t bother me
I don’t hear it

if only I could block out
unwanted memories
in the same way

Photography by Lisa Holloway

Alien, alienated. That's me.
