Fallout I


When it ended
I wanted
warm goodbyes
that never
came. I absorbed
quiet, as others
watched me
retreat, disappear
into silence.
I became
and fielded
phone calls from
curious players
in the game
of chess, played
with people, cities
doubling as
on the board.

  2. I wanted
    warm goodbyes …

    I wonder if there is a warm goodbye at all …
    I have issue with people leaving and every goodbye seems
    rather cold and sad … I even use that word very rare,
    I say “Later” instead of “good bye”

    Loved the chess in the image and mixed int he words of the poem!
