City Life

Don’t snap.

Don’t quit.

Do spit.

 

Don’t cry.

Don’t skip.

Don’t step in shit.

 

Is that human’s?

Are they human?

Am I human?

 

Drink.

Just drink.

You’ll make it if you knock back one more drink.

 

No one say’s hi when you walk by

No one looks you in the eye

It’s our mission to maintain the hive

But I miss feeling alive.

 

I miss seeing the open night sky.

Miss what the night sounds like without sirens

Miss being touched by the silence.

 

Miss a space not shared by a rat.

Miss it so much I wanna go back.

Wake up and replay same porcelain plate different day.  

 

Making paper that polishes someone else’s silver spoon

I’m just a fox pulling at the plastic trying to break through.
