Azimuth

Azimuth

The grey sparrows fly straight down
the muddy bank
into the water bodies. Carry the burden
The evening sun dipped at its lowest
Azimuth and drift,
Feel liberated and freer
Over the skyscrapers behind the City Park.

There are times when we listen to
Someone else,
as if the arteries speak gently in whispers
about the abandoned children,
as if they have learned something
from the orange splashed skies.

When I walk out, the sun slid away
The evening has no depth or height,
Surrender to red lights and sirens,
The blank eyes of the night
surveying the houses and streets
bring only scream and savage laughter.
