You know those lights 

In the sky rises downtown

How you look and wonder 

What’s going in there 

Youth is in there

Long lean legs

Secretarial lips 

Random raises 

In executive ties

Dreams bought

Nightmares sold

As the lights go out

One by one by one

Until daylight 

Finally dawns

And the aging reality

Finds its grasp 

Between hips and thighs

Of angels and their demise 

One thought on “SKY RISE ANGELS
