In the City

We felt whole
In the city
the potholes are
grand gestures of repair

the murmuring trolleys
make ablaze – of people going about

Popular the chase/
mounted in dreams of paper

Wapish/no wiser
No less/ yea’
we were fighting
to stay here.
A dying aim to dream K.M.

  1. Really like this poem. Tight and will chosen words. “Grand gestures of repair” and “No wiser/no less” great lines.
