The Industrial Town
Blankets of snow cover industrial
banks which cover nothing.
Soot covers banks of river
that flows dark and murky,
through soot covered banks.
that wind 'round industrial plants.
empty of people covered with soot.
Filling all banks with nothing.
Smoky, steel riveted boxes idle with
mesh grilled windows flap shut.
Speckled asphalt grows wild carrot,
chicory pokes through too.
Long fences sway 'round
abandoned out source,
boxes from entry.
Gold tooth pimp man leans thinly
on Joker Club wall.
Picks teeth clean
with black-eyed woman's
Blankets of snow cover
Banks that cover nothing but
empty riveted boxes with
mesh grilled windows flap shut..
