clear fork

i was driving
down hulen street
and took a right
when suddenly
the dilapidation
fell away and
budding trees
now lined the road
it seemed as if
i slipped into narnia
as i drove through
hidden clusters of
expensive homes
with fancy cars
lining the driveways
in the heart of an
otherwise indifferent
inner city squallor

a shiny new cancer
flourishing in the rot
sterile steel polyps
in displaced splendor
hidden by the trees
