city emptied

 

city roaring

emptied of nonentities

humanity pouring out

 

braked to incessant grating

bled into inner

tensions of choked mind

in fumes of

un-receding

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

 

could

would

if only soul

extricate self

from self-made

illusions
