ten scenes; four – the city

concrete and steel
ordered disorder
in rows
of jutting teeth
that pierce the sky
in defiance
glass reflects the world
like the shell
of a mechanical tortoise
the corpse
of a giant
left to rot
that blights the land
below
asphalt arteries
clogged
with plastic shelled
carbon spewing
blood clots
and
cholesterolic vitriol
nothing natural
in the gentle glow
of filamental distress
this living monstrosity
built on excess
yet still hungering
for more
more
more
