I’m a City Boy at Heart

Thursday March 28, 2013 § Leave a comment

For Gurdeep Mattu (and after John James)

a little ancilliary light
is admitted, and
reminds you that memories are physical before they are

the city is a heart
shaded, and diffuse
jittery with sangfroid, a blip

of hindrance anticipated in the
monochrome sunset
chequered now with
the sugar lights of taxi cabs

sweet loss billows across
     the fleshy spaces
the human moment refined
     out of existence
and not soon enough
