Bay

The rains came
Waves stirred hungrily

Towards the starving bay
The clouds came

Painted the city

Into shades of blue and grey
A beggar came

An impoverished child

Happy to pose for all the pictures in the world
I asked him

“Show me where you live?”

He stretched his hands to the sky

And plopped on the ground
He smiled the biggest grin

I had ever seen
His heart was broken 

Tattered into rubble

Very much like the pavement

Upon which it fell
I didn’t have to ask him

Why.

I knew

All you had to do
Was look into his eyes.

‘The city glitters at night”

He proclaimed
As we both glanced 

Beyond the horizon
Towards our future 

And the rising tide.
