Susan Fox, an American Poet

Great friends of this blog include the co-authors of the outstanding evangelizing Catholic blog, "Christ's Faithful Witness", Lawrence and Susan Fox. Susan is also blessed with the gift for poetry.

The Pieta of Main Street

The road is August-cracked,
dry and dead with frisbees.

In the autumn,

the wind wisks through the trees
and buries 
all the broken bottles of pleasing summer
under piles of vicious leaves. 

The people, who follow its crooked path, 

are crippled with need.
They are lonely for the summer,
and grow smaller in December
when the cold reduces all things to a sharp black silhouette......
