A Poem for Flash PLUS! -- Ghost Town

Berlin, Nevada, is a ghost town

I closed my eyes and willed to dream
To dream about an old ghost town
Old West town that fell on bad times
 
Abandoned.  Middle of the night
Loaded the old Ford trucks, some food,
Kids and dogs, pots and pans, they left 
 
Light of Moon, middle of the night
Kissed their fortunes teary goodbyes

 - Kerry's instructions were to write using exactly 55 words.  The PLUS part is optional, if we meet that challenge it will be "to consider the theme of the GHOST TOWN." 
 - I did both.

I guess there were quite a few places like that.

Your poem reminds the reader why people abandoned their towns, driven away by poverty in the great Depression.

I always imagine that moment of parting, and it always feel that they intended to come back.
