the city

glorious summer behind us

in tall whispers of grass


dark Erie Lake’s glass

hides sunken pyramid’s sun


modern Renaissance glistens

in Detroit’s sky


 beneath Fisher city’s heart

pulsating freely along Grand Av


in its gold leafed hallways

Aretha sings Eminem’s Revival


in the afternoon of Gratiot Av

Barney’s Khu on Riviera barge


along white starched shirt rapper

hustles generous grapes


in the undergrowth of hemmed Hamtramck

the sun has not been seen for years


i stare into the sun for days

and i see my City unfurl
