Child support

Behold the masses standing

in the sun grinning with rotted teeth.

Watch if you will the fathers abandon the sons,

the sons abandon the mothers

and the mothers schedule time to

partake in the sales of ice cream

in parlors that never close.

A place where the windows

are dirty and become a

sure sign of unrest.

All wilted graces and dreams

undefined are all that remain.

Your portrayal of a wolrd that is not far from our own intrigues me...


Great work.

Before you insult someone, walk a mile in their shoes, that way, when you insult them, you're a mile away, and you have their shoes.
