A Sidewalk Bench

Twenty seven pieces of paper
strewn across the ground
Some right side up and others
upside down.
Tiny words made with tiny amounts
of ink
Headlines and music reviews and movie clips and dictated arguments and half finished thoughts and run on sentences.
Each piece a story
Each story a piece of something more
This was once a single piece of paper
This was once a single story
The author tore it apart
The author even knew before
the author started

The author walks away
years pass and we can see
the paper decay
