CITYSCAPE | Arnold Skemer

Jagged roofs, sharks teeth to the sky
Against the dying sun
Mad caravans of hominids
In transit on streets
Of demented curvature,
Movements in paroxysms of torment.

The drift of Hogarthian breakdown,
Dissolute slime, the tempest swelling
Outwards in nightmarish speed,
The simian squawks bellowing in rage,
The madhouse expansing
Pullulating over the streets of danger.
