Some Kind of Past

Weeds split cement
as is their wont
and sprouts of various sorts
crowd out the fencing
leaving very little sign
of what was there before.

Before
a mighty bar once rose
here in this lot,
a bar with an active clientele
and an enthusiastic audience.
Times change
as is their wont
and the audience left
and the clientele died
or vice versa
and the husk of the club
is currently overwhelmed by shrubbery.

The plants do not remember the past
or
not the same past
that we sometimes do
but I am not so green
that I cannot recall
when The Ersatz was here
and we partied
like it was 1999
for that is my wont.
