city emptied


city roaring

emptied of nonentities

humanity pouring out


braked to incessant grating

bled into inner

tensions of choked mind

in fumes of


disorder jamming

the free drive

of inner spaces


till leisurely paces

that will not come

or come grudgingly

only in dispirited

early mornings hung

wrinkled over –


only when futility-eroded

days of creeping inroads

into asphalts of prefabricated life

past the self-opening doors

of faked truth

ignore the hot button

for top flights

of progress

cluttering up

pent-houses of mind




if only soul

extricate self

from self-made
