Random Poem:

Wacker Drive
gjenkins

the sounds of the street beating down the
 1
intentional enemy, the man who has
 2
nowhere to go, laughs at his own
 3
destruction ,
 4
his guile being,
 5
the door that never opened for
 6
him,
 7
but the driver in the
 8
porches has a solution,
 9
his sleep will not be interrupted,
 10
his children will safely make bad
 11
decisions, as long as
 12
this
 13
man stays  a weary drunk,
 14
keep the shelters
 15
full, hold out against success or hope,
 16
 
 
as long as he's at arm length
 17
of happiness
 18
 
 
the wealthy will be in their snuggled
 19
cocoons
 20
 
 
as the streets sighs into another
 21
night of peace, as the maddened unopportunist puts
 22
his knife away
 23
