Dead City Country

I forget how quiet my neighbourhood is

Until I spend a whole weekend close
Enough to home to not have to take a
Vehicle out of the drive. Except for the
Sound of a few cars and the occasional

Skateboard rattle you would never know
People lived here at all. Like we were one
Of those American cities that have recently
Become ghost towns. Steepleton may have

Changed over the last couple of decades,
You can only outpray so much evil at a
Time after all, but is still, like when I first
Found it, a city in the country of the dead.
