City of Glass Houses

Posted: June 3, 2015 in Quickie

The streets are never empty, I’m just another face in the
      crowd to be ignored.
   
      Nobody stops walking.
   
      The people move about, taking purposeful strides.
   
      The only time anyone stops is to turn around.
   
      The stolen glances are all I need.
   
      The houses all have transparent windows.Ā 
   
      Everything is for sale.
   
      But nothing at all comes cheap.
   
      Take a right and then a left to the grocery store…
   
      They carry their bags and push their carts on their way out
      of the city.
   
      And those who leave empty handed kinda have no
      identities.Ā 
   
      I’ll smile at those who smile at me, I’ll take your flyers
      and I’ll buy your furniture.
   
      But I’m not a part of you.
   
      You’re too rich for my blood, Big City Mall.
   
      I’m just passing through.Ā 
   
      I’ll come back tomorrow and give you more parts of me…

The invasion…..

Posted: June 2, 2015 in Quickie

It’s almost like a movement.
The girls with their boys on the Merry go rounds..
So that when you turn around, you feel like you are being stalked…
As much as a situation haunts you….
…..
It is most certainly chaos……
The pesky kid with the shoes that have tires…….
The boys with their identical haircut……..
The space that cannot be found when all she needs is to talk………
……….
It’s all pixelated………..
What’s another pretty face in the sea of eyes, lips and hair?………..
The minutes spent waiting for the end of time………….
…………..
