Urban Cog

          Urban Cog

Twilight.  Crack of dawn.
The city yawns and wiggles
Her dew-covered slippery jaws

The avenue is hollow and silent.
Street lights sigh deeply shutting their eyes
To fuse with the vanishing stars

Serene and slippery as a panther,
Darkness waits on the ledge
Of the double pane window
Expecting the final surrender of

The working class prostrate in bed.
Their dreams now on their final act
Preclude the end and hijack the birth of…

                                       Another bright day.
