children of the dust

in response to today’s prompt here: readwritepoem

I randomly generated a picture online: null

The sepia children of this dusty gloam
Never played cloud pictures
Never tried to outrun a moon they couldn’t see
Hope rests on a broken down scarlet bus
An outcry against futility
But this is futile in itself
The destination ended here twenty years ago.
