Trash Talkers

Michael Mogel

Trash talkers, street walkers
standing in the aisle
sitting on the wall
loitering outside
drinking past last call.
Dreams in black and white
urban gentry - urban flight.
Here dogs donīt bury bones.
Root less and ruthless
poets hiding under stones
expressing fear and doubt,
blue minds dream hazily
what itīs all about.
The void again
and what I see
trash talkers, street walkers and me.
