Delicate Bones

They huddled,
Lost in tendrils of
Cigarette smoke
In crumbling desolate alleyways,
Wreathed with climbers and
Orchids whispering in hushed
Tones in their ragged clothes.
Isubterranean_400n elegant cement cities laced
With steel girders coursing
With black oil through metallic veins;
Buttressed by solitude and loneliness
Whistling down the streets like a beast.

A ravenous beast
Of delectable bones,
Delicate bones
Like green stones
Collecting in the bottom of
A river smoothed by time
Under gurgling
Shinning streams.
And lost dreams.

Collected
Stones of Wisdom
Falling, sinking;
Eroded by acid rain
Flowing down
Drains to the sea.

Glistening,
Glinting
In the sun;
Lost treasures,
Golden pleasures
That once adorned
The High streets
And back beats.

The cracking whips
And sinking ships,
Oceans awash with
Plastic and blood
Like a biblical flood.

As they huddled,
Lost in tendrils of
Cigarette smoke
In crumbling desolate alleyways,
Wreathed with climbers and
Orchids whispering in hushed
Tones in their ragged clothes.
In elegant cement cities laced
With steel girders coursing
With black oil through metallic veins.
Buttressed by solitude and loneliness
Whistling down the streets like a beast;
A ravenous beast of delectable bones,
Delicate bones, lost treasures and
Golden pleasures.
