UNDERGROUND VOICES: POETRY
KEITH WOOD

Lonely Place

Iím letting my hair grow
to forget,
to un-learn what Iíve become,
and what was expected.

These new buildings
that surround me now
will stand
or fall,
based upon change
or luck,
not divine intervention.

This lonely place
will soon bow down
and let me pass.


Keith Wood has successfully escaped from Philadelphia and is now living
and working in Austin, Texas. He sends most of his stories and poems
to Underground Voices and Cherry Bleeds, and hopes that his mom isn't
isnít reading any of them.
