Who are the people in your neighbourhood!

Melancholia,
such a beautiful word
in a sad sort of way,
for today
we drove around
a middle class neighbourhood,
sorta out of our league
even outta our way
most certainly
notta part of our need,
a wonderful day
I must say
sunny and bright
windows down
children at play
such a delight,
in and outta alleys
up and down
streets and avenues, we drove
free and contented
insane and demented
dumpster diving
its what they call it in another
world,
manicured lawns
pesticide dreams
not a blade outta place,
kids riding bikes
playing catch
robots flying kites
contemplating suicidal tendencies
night mares on display,
daytime dreams
intermingled with the silence
of a strangers screams
“of course they are mine”
young ladies jogging
trying desperately to catch up
to the future,
“poor dears”
older ladies
in bright yellow dresses
adorned in coal black flowers,
walking, talking,
staring,staring,staring,
butchered life’s safely hidden
wrapped comfortably
in the left over pieces
of yesteryears cellopain!
surrounded by the downfall of democracy
preparing for the rising of hypocrisy,
contentment still absorbed us,
“it was sunny and bright,
warm,
silence surrounded us,
until he asked about you,
I smiled,
he smiled,
and we drove around
the neighbourhood
one more
time,
melancholia
such a beautiful word
in a happy sort of way…

Who are the people in your neighbourhood!
