Reflecting Reflexes

church bells chiming

familiar faces passing

damp feet and strangers

making the best of it


a new homely feel

attracted to scars

no longer



a kind silence

no longer humming

to thoughts

of cardboard


a remembrance

of things yet to pass

body and mind

fairly bartered


not caring

worries no longer inscribed

discomforted animal

emotionless and chaste


above cement

an overcast of

pollution and doves

mask off the face

Thought about what you said, and I decided to switch the last two stanzas around, because as you said, the pollution and doves is a good image for the end. Although I think the other stanza is necessary for structure and use of slant rhyme. Thanks for the thoughtful reply.
