Downtown Streets

L.T. Garvin

These downtown streets

are like

broken promises

spilling into

the surrounding neighborhood.

They are like pathways

bordering

an interrupted fantasy.

They are

arteries

skirting the secrets

of pavement.

These downtown streets

once agleam

silent now

as a once brief dream.

The terrace stroll

of shoppers spent

cracks run like blood veins

through pavement.

The streets fall silent

in the limelight

of yesterday

crowds have diminished

into corridors

of decay.
