Relentlessly… acid rain….

 

is falling continuously…

 

(It had been rain some day).

 

Street….Never lonely, shadows and shows,

 

So, so…shady shows, shadowy streets.

 

Muddy human souls, cruel crowds, empty bowls, hands, Smoke and fuel that provoke wars.

 

Smokes of glory, empty of principles.

 

A hollow, a show, a shadow and a bare plate.

 

Empty of glory, fin secular hands.

 

Drugs and scare, violet violence

 

On violet dreams.

 

Abrupt, interrupt, disrupt, sudden, rushed,

 

a hundred feet insect falls under a car….

 

Tongue on Tango. Argot of the dirty city,

 

The city of the dirty money. A dirty angel…

 

There’s a muddy injure in his small hand.

 

Scuff, ouch, it hurts, a pain restrains me.

 

Why me? No bread, no brotherhood, no breath…

 

In the middle of the muddy rubbish,

Only dreams of glory.

 

 In the muddy city in an empty world,

 

 I am the child, the baby,

 

A rabbit,

 

 A bit.

Loved the halting flow of this piece. Very unique! Excellent imagery!

Loved what the line: "muddy human souls" conjured, and also how you kept referring to "muddy" throughout the construct to reinforce blind thoughtlessness.

Poetic excellence flows through the lines of "Shady City".

An enjoyable reading, indeed.

urban living in the eaves of the 21st century...you've captured the grit, the darkness, the pure will to survive and in so doing, to prosper.
Reviewed by edward ehrlicher 5/15/2003
It is a dark, insightful poem on the nature of the city and city people. As I live in Chicago I feel it deeply. Great poem, thanks for sharing.
