Its a wash 

Last nights rain bled
the chalk drawings on your driveway
and the little stick girl holding hands with to the little stick boy
next to the question mark
were sucked into the abyss
and out comes a weed hanging its head,
he knows he cannot win.
Rows of concrete slowly fight off the darkness that blankets them
and a caterpillar braves the open land
passing underneath a crow without notice.
