In movement of time

in the heat of arid winds

thirty walked and live

most knowing the other's name


Today things have changed a bit

few would know four of neighbors named

yet, the heat of arid winds

are still felt in Las Vegas today

Hmmmmmm. I like the word usage.. the rhythm is different, like a cowboy song

Hi Keith. This has a timeless quality to it. Along with the mystery and economy of words, it's quite memorable. Thanks.

Shows the gap between us in culture and those before us brilliantly.

Keith a wonderful rendition of 'then and now' in a few short words ... with a large impact. Super!

Worthy combination of past and present Keith, with a certain sadness in how all cities seem to have the problem cited in the second stanza.
