Urban Still Life

A formation of stoned 
giants
An’ the pavement full of 
bodies
and reflected in the 
blinds  
men and women walking 
hotly.

Advertising shields they 
promise
in the heaven to take 
pleasure,
in a multistory hospice –
folks – they cannot be at 
leisure.

Fumed flesh waits for a 
vacation.
‘Cause of petrol burnt in 
air, 
there is only one salvation 
–
wine to buy at where it’s 
near.

Nerves of streets you ever 
scorch
to the innermost of brain.
Fortune carries here a 
torch
for a winner in the game.
