April Poem #8

From Poetic Asides.  Today LeeBee had us write poem inspired by a painting.  I’m not too big on this type of thing, but it’s important to do it.  So I did.  The painting is here.

Piazza

In the distance it rose
Far from me as I approached
through desolate buildings
where no one stood
to watch as I went by.

I passed two men, two strangers there,
they shook hands to see me walking there.

It was a deal they seemed to make right then,
On what I couldn’t imagine,
so I left them in the shade of the dome
in the middle of nowhere.
I left them nowhere.
Leaving my desolation behind.
