THERE WAS A DUMPSTER IN AN ALLEY
LOOKED LIKE A BLACK BEAR IN THE ROAD
THERE WAS A STAIN OF BLOOD, A SIXERS CAP
& THE STENCH OF PISS & BEER….
THERE WAS AN OUTSKIRTS, GLOW OF LAMPLIGHT
FROM A HALF A BLOCK AWAY
AND THERE WAS THE GHOST OF GREED, THE GHOST OF FURY
AND THE GHOST OF FEAR
* * * * *
THERE WAS A CHARRED SPOT IN THE GUTTER
THAT WOULD SLICK UP IN THE RAIN
THERE WAS A HALF TIN CAN
THAT BEEN BURNED OVER THE BRAND (NAME)
TALL WINDOWS PANED IN PLYWOOD
WAREHOUSES CLOSED FOREVER
& THE EVERY NIGHT MOSQUITOES
WITH NO INTENT TO LAND
* * * * *
THERE CAME AN OLD DOG WITH A BAD LIMP
HE HAD A SLOW GAIT AND A HUNGER
THERE WERE SOME PIGEONS ON A WIRE
AND THEY WERE OPEN-EYED AND STILL
THERE WAS AN AURA TO THE WHOLE PLACE
LIKE SOMEONE ELSE WAS LURKING….
SUCH IS THE HISTORY OF WHERE SOMEONE
HAS BEEN KILLED
