Abandoned Coaster

A rusting smile

Chipped and faded red

Reflecting joys of summers past.

Lost in the silence

Echoes of children’s laughter

Choked by the overgrown grass.

Exciting motion

Over hills and around bends

Only felt in the memory of the abandoned track.

Empty cars

Passengers now grown and gone

With kids of their own that they never brought back.
