Leaving Weekends

People stand
as the sweetness
slowly evaporates
and another life
begins to step
out of themselves.

People wander
through twisted wreckage
along roadsides
following accidents
numb with shock
at the fragility of life.

Is it any wonder
we leave weekends
behind and follow death
with tears beginning
to fall down our faces?
