Pair of gloves

I wanted new clothes,
to cycle, to play tennis
and run in my fields.
Sixteen and seventeen years,
I suppose.

It was a basement
in a story, the city
where I live, now.
People and sounds had
disappeared, all of a sudden.

I doubted, at that moment,
but I could not, just could not buy
anything, out of there.

Then, I decided, slowly
to walk away, out of that
new base.

I saw then,
far away,
the easiest way
is something,
I will never,
ever forget!
