Fizzy Wisdom - Cobblestone street

Wandering the cityscape at night

I am the passenger with no ride

Passing by

Passive to the passers by

Let me be here

And the city says ‘yes’

Shadowy trees eerily extend gnarled branches

Like wizened wizards

Benevolent boughs of bonhomie:

A silhouetted sop to the anomie

(my soul’s familiar enemy)

Let me be here

And the city says ‘yes’

Figures scuttle rat-like and risky

Bin bags billow in the wind:

Black balloons

In chorus rustle;

‘Let me be here’

And the city says ‘yes’

Pimps and dealers

Cut deals on corners

On edge on the edge

With jagged intentions

Searing through

Serendipity

‘Let me be here’

And the city says ‘yes’

Girl meets boy

In temptation’s trist

Bodies entwined

Under sodium glare

Breathless they murmur

In heady unison

‘Let me be here’

And the city says ‘yes’
