Sylvia (2)

Adam J. Maynard

Autumn imbued with time
Ronald McDonald bending
The noise, the light coming in
Skulls laugh and smoke cigarettes
Outside the great library
Where we stack books
The sound of a friendship ending
Dust motes laugh
Inside giant volumes
Winter light pouring in
Around nearly every corner
Time for the new spirits to rise
Sylvia crosses the road
Apparently weeping
Because she has no idea
How she has disappearedĀ
