Not The Place


It's not a place you'll find in any guides:
cheap clusters of hotels; each restaurant
is just a putrid café; these roadsides
are simply there to pass by;

Don't dare flaunt
your femininity among this fog
of careless people, given the cold tricks
of human jetsam in this wasteland smog,
condensed, thick in the air;

It also slips
across the semi-conscious in the dirt,
dumped, injured on the ground; and then ignored
by worthy citizens, who always skirt
urban detritus;

This is the reward
for studying this place you came across,
lacking the guidance to prevent your loss.
