City Night Watching shadows through the moonless night, catching only glimpses in the light of passing cars. The pounding of the ground beneath my calloused feet, echoes incomplete through my existence. A distant siren sings, making music in my ears and sending visions, somewhat clear, in my subconsciousness. Scenes of love, neglected and abused and of children dressed in tattered clothes, with soiled hands and messy faces, eating from a can of cold soup, while Mommy turns a trick and chases dragons on the other side of town. A dog is barking, not without distinction, and I wonder what it really means, what I should be thinking, when a woman screams in rhythmic ecstasy, that she CANíT TAKE ANOTHER MINUTE OF HIS LOVE! Soon, gunshots ringing near incite the fears of my reality and the haste of my escape. Then curtly so, the bitter taste of silence reverberates against the thickness of the sultry city night.
