It Is Dead Of Night

It is dead of night and

Blocks begin to de-light!

A fleeting relief!

Same corner, same table,

Same talks, same laughs.

Same men, same women.

Same girls, same boys.

Same streets, same malls,

Same faces, same thanks.

Same blares, same demands,

Same crowds, same yells.

Same poets, same readings,

Same followers, same clamours.

Same leaders, same promises,

Same butchers, same goats, same pigs.

Same alleys, same women,

Same bargains, same bliss.

A dog barks, a child cries,

Bats screech, winds howl.
