You walked this depraved metropolis
Teeming with piquant smells and pungent exhalations
You drove past knotted streets
and corners where Allsorts
scampered and thrived- strays, felines and the perpetual swarm
or trickle of nobodies- strangers whose hearts staccato frantically with
Allkinds of woes desires ignominies
And yet you left----
After a quiet battle with the eagle-hawk
and its bloodcurdling marbled eyes
It swooped on your last breath amidst the
ominous madcap flapping of its silken
Black wings--- you left a ferocious
Wife who garbed-shod
you in the finest couture and
Abandoned a jewel of a child
Almost aloneómouthing
her shattering queries to God.
Now-----as the shadows lengthen
And form cowering shapes on the chipped filth-coated pavements
We remain a gloomy wretched phalanx- immobile
at the acrid palpable grief.
