i wrote this 20 years ago

the city

steel columns rising stark
beauty fallen in the neon park
one ant moves among others
denying all of his brothers

the city breathes

feeding on steel and flesh
caught in an iron mesh
spitting out refuse, human garbage
living on misuse, waste and carnage

the city seethes

one ant is me
no destiny
i cannot see
what may not be

the city breathes

snatches my last, gasping breath

the city heaves

throwing a man to his death

the city leaves
