The City #1

Lost in the pressure of the Simulacra,
the strange among strangers
faces
of new buildings
                seeming
threatening,

weird & eerie.

Yet all the rest – or so
                        it seems –
of the animals in the City
are so at ease,
               but to me
the noise,
the fumes & traffic, tragic
neglected people forced to sleep
on the streets – “Sorry,
don’t have any change” –
& the oppressive cranes
declaring the domination
                                of Capital;

the hive-mind
blind to the mantic fury of
                            the lost
history buried beneath the streets
consume me.

The City disgusts me.

  1. Do you have an indentation and line spacing template you go off of or how are you just so consistent with it? Pure style? Guts? It’s very impressive.

    MAN I hate the city, and I don’t even live there!

    • I just follow where I think certain words will look aesthetically pleasing on the page while also giving them the emphasis I want them to have. So if I read them out loud, those lines would have longer pauses than between normal lines.
