You Are Alive

Posted to Action Poetry

Your sunken sidewalks bloom prolific
invasive beauty buds through your angry concrete anyway
Your topless girls pierce the body of night with jumbled
tattoos --- radiant in the mercury vapor twilight.
Your shoeless black boys tap dance beyond
the double-barreled despondent.
Your affluent trumpets hail Gabrielle to come down from his shotgun bar room and blow new life into a bored bacchanal.
Desire Street is found, and You... You are alive!
