Nelson Linscott


The rats

are the souls of dead landlords

The grey stains

of the city

melt into the gutters

in a city of no hope

broke bricked

destitute, crumbling

The sun still rises

Rain anoints

the walkers of the night

soul-less, stumbling

There is no fear

the slums are freedom

with black and white dreams

And color has been banished
