THE CITY – Promote Yourself

terrifying-ghost-sightings-8

Dusk in the city
The bars are filled with the young
Each with their own style
But as the bar fills
They
Bump into mirrors as
They squeeze past.
The man standing outside
Not
Interested in the crowd
His smoke blows into the air
It dances with the mists
Of time
That are forever present
On these streets
Haunted tonight
Not from histories ghosts
The ghost of her.
The buildings
Each one a reminder of something
They passed at one time
Hand in hand
Life in life.
Now no more
Their life now becomes
More mist to be added
To this city.

There is a building over the road
The window face out over
A crossroads.
How many have sat
And dreamed about a life to come
Or a life that was.
Plans so important to those
Who sat there?
Now only remembered
By the walls that
Still stand.
The cigarette stubbed out
Placed in the bin
In case the birds eat it
She was always worried about those birds
A small smile comes on his face
Another bit dies inside
Over the loss.
Passes through the others
Standing in the bathroom
Washing his hands
Trying to wash away the decision made
He knows the ghosts
Are telling him something
When he is unable to look
At himself in the mirror.

Pigeons

These city pigeons

Strolling around our feet

As though we are St Francis,

Sticking out their necks

Intent on fossicking,

We envy their waddling nonchalance

As we with trepidation tread

Past chewing gum and litter

On streets unpaved with gold
