cancellation of travel plans…

cancellation of travel plans

no angels
on high
proclaiming
what to star
to follow
nor
yellow brick road
leading to oz
just putrid city street
lined with vacant lots
vacant lots
planted with the cast-offs
of society
this is
the new way
found in every city
for mumbai
to chicago
ocean to ocean
waves of derelict souls
ignored
and brought
to the boiling point
when they
should’ve been kept
refrigerated
now
the rancid consequence
of ignorance
takes it toll
go ahead
call the police
they aren’t coming
these streets
are too
dangerous
for
armed men
best that
you
never arrive
