Beat Street ( For Mr. Kerouac...on the road again)

city streets
lined with ghost-like
faces...empty

black eyes
glued to shop-front
windows...empty

reflections of hope
the only sign
of life

blood stained
pavements
gutters gurgling
with greed

...empty

broken promises
&
dead dreams
dancing naked
on a $2 coin

...empty

in the distance
an unknown busker
lets his horn
reincarnate
Miles Davis
round about
midnight
