Walls peel
 in spaces where
rust
fades seamlessly
into dust
at times slightest
  touch
Green paint
  lurches into
curled fingernails
 scratching at
nothing

Leaves eat at
tires flattened
Soulless folds of
  rubber cracked by
neglect sit
  heavy, holding
onto pasts not
  worth recounting

Broken chairs
  shards of plastic
pointing nowhere
  empty bottles
labels long
since faded
sit atop
toys forgotten to
  to rot
tossed into a
  tomb at the edge
of
   Suburbia
