Escape

feral cat jowls
on crooked fence
broken wine bottles
litter city streets
he steps over
white chalk line
wondering if he
will ever escape

Liquidation

Boats heaved ashore
Cottage roads eerily quiet
Children back in the city
All business now
And like a switch was flipped
The water in the lake now darker
Deeper

The flapper girls,
never even noticed
their city turned to Bakerlite.

City Tales – 1

Manmade, inert walls
Too heartless
To breath compassion,
Yet sweat escapes
Urban pores,
And the concrete lamina
Ain’t too impervious
To wounds –
They bleed.

kindling

like a dreary city street
that explodes
at coming of night
with lights & noise
and colliding lives

my dreary
rut-filled life
ignites
at merest thoughts
of you

In the city

Channeling the light
of the moon
reflecting off endless glass
I’m a scratch in the shadow
of the skyscrapers
embed myself
with the masses
can anyone see me?

City Walk

A city walk
where neon lights
bounce of traffic
in silent rain
as laughs escape
(from glum wet folk)
like hidden tales
down Memory Lane.

BETRAYAL

There’s so much to see
from birds to butterflies
& mildewed roses

can I pick one for
the sun betrayed by clouds
the city didn’t expect?
