:: Nature study by D.W. Bohn ::

Places like these
we call them quiet
just because
we haven't built
any houses in them
not yet anyway
we call these places quiet
even though the whirr of motion
is constant
and purposeful activity
is everywhere evident
it may escape notice
but it just does not abate
or at least
it hasn't been seen to abate
not yet anyway

it's to places just like these
where the pace of life
is so unrelentingly
murderously fast
and the very idea of leisure
is foreign
that people come
when they feel
the need
to relax
