Reblogged with kind permission.
allegory of the urbanites.
from the city is where i came.
under the sun, the concrete glared,
and the train went out
we all live behind closed walls;
erected to keep out the noise
from the chaos that is all around
like a thought
or maybe a disease.
everyone is so afraid of the stranger.
there is no sympathy for the foreigner,
but everyone of us is a traveler
in the city where i came from.
