#frapalymo – City Streets

City Streets

Walking down sidewalks


among roiling rivers of strangers

rushing by

Horns blare

The clash of steel

Mechanical scraping of

erecting buildings reaching higher

then crashing down

Thoughts and whims

acting out in metal monstrosities

rising and falling

The heartbeat of city streets

This May poetry project is hosted by @FrauPaulchen and is translated by Bee on her blog The Bee writes. Today’s prompt is “cities”. Feel free to click the link and join in.

      • Well, there is always lots more in a poem, than we know 🙂 Hilde Domin a German poetess who emmigrated to the Dominican Republic in the 1930’s or 40’s forged the theory hat a poem becomes something else entirely as soon as it is read by a reader because he or she brings in her/his own experiences, values and knowledge. That gives poems such a vast possibility of meaning. I believe in her theory 🙂
