Downtown Dreams II

Did you walk

Down city streets

Dreaming downtown dreams?

Thoughts held fast in prayer

By flickering lights, staining concrete

Touched by frost and left wandering

Through chimney pots and gun smoke.

 

Did you walk

Down city streets

Dreaming downtown dreams?

Hearing whispers from slate

Behind unlit windows

Like faceless voices riding

On a poisoned wind.
