Artifacts

A dog in the dirt is digging up
the remnants of the past
it was only yesterday
that I held you fast

a sparrow sits lifeless
on the rain-soaked patio
it reminds me of a ballad
heard on a pocket radio

about a lucky man who
made it to the top
when the world is over
I pray the pain will stop

will we evolve with wings
to take us far away
or with sullen, narrow eyes
face our own reckoning day?

I lay my head upon the track
to hear the soothing sound
a face in the crowd not a living soul
for miles and miles around

a mock band began playing
a feel-good sixties tune
about an ill-fated revolution
on some far-off forgotten moon

naturally I thought of you
and your golden hair so bright
and I popped a soda can
and said good morning to the night

were you just a dream
an inanimate creation?
are you just as lost
are you my destination?
