Electric City

Live in an electric city no more—
Seeing lightning move through wires and stones,
Count people building boxes to the sky,
And thousands of crowded, converging roads;
Where blue light blisters white-ghost in the night
And clouds recoil back from murder sounds:
Tired brakes, worn tires, the human howl;
The smell of waste and gas is all around.
Grasses turn brown and the creatures have gone,
