evidence of presence

silence be the friend

darkness be the home

in the ground …. be fused

evidence of presence?

the tombstones

little boy

the little boy
siting on the mall’s stairs
watching people come and out
carrying shopping bags
some are laughing
some are rushing
then
he saw a man
who’s siting near by
giving ice cream to his son
reminding him to his late father

mind drawn about him
he will buy me ice cream
he will also by beside me
to celebrate the evening
He is wiping his tears
remained seating
pressing his stomach
so hungry
Hopes of kindness
to give him food
but no one cares

then
the man near by
Asking about his parentage
His just shaking head
he then
taking his hand
ask him to celebrate
the night with his family
nothing to say
just teary eyes
reaching the man’s hand
Tears changed to a smile
smiling for
the most beautiful
new year gift
he ever had
