Long and longing like something transpiring; but outside over there, under and away or through – like a car being driven by a lung full mad man on his way to see a woman whose heart is broken in two…

These are chalk figures on a board waiting for you the viewer to erase them – I will wait as you attempt to do so…

Pale and then paler still, or soft and then softer still or maybe faint and melodic, like a piano trill or a bassoons fading air at a park concert where you have been waiting for your dreams to amount too…

These are chalk notations on a board waiting for you the reader to erase them – I will wait as you attempt to do so…

Now a mother with fragile bones locks herself alone at home – the windows and doors will not open, though her child wants to be invited back for a while, and laugh like the two of them use to…

These are chalk souls on a board waiting for you the saint to erase them – I will wait as you attempt to do so…

  2. I love the repetition of the phrase that makes me, the obedient reader, attempt to erase them just because you said so and just because it’s impossible.

  3. Good one…..different, melodic as those instruments so instrumental to it.

  4. funny thing about chalkboards, you can erase and erase, but there’s always a trace until they’re scrubbed hard with hot sudsy water.

    and even then, you can still see what’s beneath, trying to resurface like little survivors.

    I hope that I would not be one to try.
