Random Poem:

Wacker Drive

the sounds of the street beating down the
intentional enemy, the man who has
nowhere to go, laughs at his own
destruction ,
his guile being,
the door that never opened for
but the driver in the
porches has a solution,
his sleep will not be interrupted,
his children will safely make bad
decisions, as long as
man stays  a weary drunk,
keep the shelters
full, hold out against success or hope,
as long as he's at arm length
of happiness
the wealthy will be in their snuggled
as the streets sighs into another
night of peace, as the maddened unopportunist puts
his knife away
