Urban Tales

By Tessa   

There are so many stories
Crammed together in narrow apartments
Stories of love, dreaming, jealousy
Stacked on top of each other on too-steep streets –
Nothing but faith keeping them aright –
Poems of ordinary times, bittersweet seconds
Hidden in shadowy vines and secret doorways
There is so much humanity
Woven in dirty, colorful, busy streets that smell
Of all the sweat and brilliance
That makes the city burn
Like a star – magnificently mangled
