Metropolis~by Paul F. Lenzi





sirens and stuttering
jackhammer expletives
songs of the city
conspicuous voluble
voices mechanical
sounds exclaim
unsleeping industry
clamor in canyon
of granite and glass
blaring taxi horns
flatulent buses
deep groans grind
from garbage truck
compacters steely
squeals screech their
aggression as subway
wheels round stubborn
curves airbrakes gasp
in black bowels of
commerce while
car alarms scream
pleading mercy
from larcenous night
leaving lost in this
maniac music these
discordant decibels
millions of soft
whispered prayers
