Poem: Beneath the Streets

image

Beneath the streets
And sidewalk stains
Under the potholes
Filled with rain
Clay and mud
Cement and stones
No secrets here
In the city’s bones
Those are found
Behind the walls
In unknown rooms
In hidden halls
The dirt removed
Can be put back
Fill the hole
Seal the crack
Again, it’s buried
Hidden from sight
Never again
To see the sun’s light
