This City Of Dreams


Light curving and quivering
across the drum tight skin,
it carries the sky with ease,
yet a falling leaf
creates ripples.


the city is for hustlers
everyone wanting to 'get on',
find that better life -
windows open, different tongues.


This silence
has been so long -
fruit flies settling on the pears.


Its a long stretch
from the fence to the washing line-
the spider dancing in the breeze.


The evening is warm
voices across the gardens -
the blackbird too.
