Wednesday Poem

Monument Valley, 2050

East Mitten: The crowds have left.
West Mitten: They won’t be back.

East Mitten: Seems darker now.
West Mitten: I see more stars.

East Mitten: It’s quiet too.
West Mitten: The hum is gone.

East Mitten: The dust has settled.
West Mitten: For good, it seems.

East Mitten: They’re really gone?
West Mitten: They are no more.

East Mitten: Just you and me?
West Mitten: Back to eternity
