Tuesday Poem: "Places Becoming Lonely" by Andrew M. Bell


Photo Credit: Andrew M. Bell

Not a name on a marquee,
but a firmament in which a star could shine

this solid Earth, dependable unless we forget
the hard lessons of gravity

understated, not showy, he knew the places
his eyes could take the audience

there are more of us now and they say
we are more visually literate

and the images multiply daily
and yet there are more

places becoming lonely

by Andrew M. Bell
