Lyrics For A City’s Night. - Poem by Stephen S. Yeandle

On a balcony across from the Laundromat,
I watch the daylight decompose.

Hookers look 'en for a little cash,
how many pickups how many fights?

Flashing lights,
the sirens,
this is how it always is.

A city's collective attitude,
unforgiving winter's night.

Willing acceptance,
no disbelief.

Cacophony of broken sounds,
declarations of emptiness.
