On the Wind
By Amy Souza
Inspiration Piece

The amethyst-colored bug
flew into the room,
enraptured by the wind.

Like the tiny Chihuahua,
just seven pounds,
grabbed by a gust and
carried seven miles.

In the back of a pickup truck,
a chained dog paces,
catches the eye of a passing traveler,
mourns for
what might have been.

in the backyard
come summer,
but no one
eats them.

They are too small.

The radio brings news of disaster
While television asks you to forget:

People live and die
Generations pass
The wind blows time away.
