The city skyline

The city skyline’s broken teeth
Chewed on the fog’s edge
Yellowed and dirty tendrils seethe
Above the sun’s defeated wedge

The lights wink on like stars but dim
One for one they blink and wink
Musical lights but just a whim
Whimsical eyes peer through the stink

Exhaust exhausted
Encrusted in grime
Another sunset display wasted
As sun slides into slime

The city skyline’s broken teeth
Gum at the blue-black dusk
A faded funeral wreath
Above a wasted husk

Yet city life slowly creeps out
Of chimneys and alleys
As the irritated neighbor shouts
Through the concrete valleys

And as the snake of traffic exits
The city goes to sleep
The teeth still clenches and grits
As the pain cuts so deep
