Sonnet of Cities
Grainy, square-top, ten stories deep, Played the ugly, poor, lovely, rich. All the brown lines, to schools, homes, the streets Population: shiny, circular, six legs – which is which? I never wished to know their ends, He smashed, white sneaker sole to soil, their souls. I wondered, didn’t wish – which of them were friends? Closer to the sky, and we’re closer to our roles. Joe, remember, though - When I played next to you.
