city of night

winds shriek

up dark alleys

rattling cans,

swirling trash,

city of sleeplessness,

of fevered dreams,

of locked doors

and shuttered windows,

city of lost souls

wandering aimless,

sleeping on benches,

crying softly in despair,

city of broken lives,

under streetlamps,

in open doorways,

smoky bars

and all-night diners,

city of sorrows,

of the woebegone

and mournful

who whimper

like beaten dogs

in shadow until

the first gold

light of dawn

 

--M deO
