This Isolate, Weme

On the grounds
of Bauman’s torched General Store,
where you could buy candy or creams
many years back,
stands a park.

once living beside the burnt store
in the abandoned town
is the man who built it.
He no longer lives
among the ghosts in Weme,
He has found another place to rest.

Some still visit
this secret village
left forlorn these last hundred years
hoping to find some memories
or history
or something that attaches them
to this isolated land.
They leave,

The few who remain
are buried
haunting this empty town
wishing there was more to keep them company
but an empty post office
and a long-torched store.
