Drifting over glistening streets
Laughter rises with me
As crying lingers amidst fallen angels
Strained and distorted
Voices eager with sex
Young bodies friction charged
Glow with electric sweat
Old man unshaven
Stumbles as blood shot vision fails
Saxophone riffs
Twist around the gingko
Golden leaves
Flutter to the ground with ennui
Disembodied and wafting
Like the cigarette smoke around me
My innocence
Struggles against gravity
I died here. . .
