Downtown Dreams

Did you walk

Down city streets,

Dreaming downtown dreams?

Teary sky above,

Droplets weeping over cast iron fences,

Orange brick and the cobbled streets

Filled with empty faces, deserted,

Save for headlights driving past;

Dark and sleeping town,

Layered with dampened alley roads,

Littered with shadows and ghosts.
