The Ghosts of Metropolis

Silent isolation,

buildings abandoned,

as the ghosts of the city cry out

in broken desolation.

Highways that scream,

with the poltergeists of the past.

Graves ripped from the earth

to lay pavement for progress,

and ignore the sentimental moralities of our ancestors,

who linger down lonely streets

at night,

Wondering who will be left to hear their cries, or care

for the memories they leave behind.
