Demolish written by Rando Mithlo at

The drive here seemed so long
All that past had flashed
Removed from existence
The details I love fade
A lone brick in the brush
Steadied a red chimney
Seen me out gather wood
Is that looming smoke
Or a choking cloud

Through a foundation trace
A backyard tall
Rusting out like fear weakens
And ghost walls haunting me
Do you still step through that door
Open the drapes
The dark escapes
On your face sun radiates
A generation overgrown
One outbuilding left to raze

Best just look forward
Voices call, and back l fall
Demolished, stuck in my craw
Keepsake thoughts
Without a shelf
Cedar box or porcelain jar
Now to float in the ether
