abandoned - Stepin' Out


Steppin' out with my baby...

I forget.

Are we marching for the struggle against conformity or the struggle for unity? Are we in layers or are we just rows? Are we progressive illumination or regressive graffiti?

Abandoned - Walls and Partitions


Walls and partitions.

She said, “I just don’t know you now;
I don’t know who you are.”
Her eyes were turned to something else;
A place he could not see.
A fog crept in around his thoughts;
A grayness filled his world.
She met his gaze, his mind, once more;
He felt their thoughts dissolve.
Their time had stretched too thin to last;
She turned and walked away.
Her footsteps etched into his past;
His future was today.

Dear aunt: Hope this
will find you all well
and enjoying life to the
fullest extent. I guess
you have forgotten all
about your naughty little
iece that lives in Kan
Haven't you? I don't know when
we have heard from you. I am
still working and like it fine
but sure get tired lots of times,
and wish I was our in the
country. I can't hardly wait
for vacation time.

There is no dated postmark. The Franklin one cent postage stamp was issued beginning 1908. The card shows a copyright mark dated 1912. The design seems to be by "Seward"
