Magic City

magic, is there magic here
in this neon jungle where
the eyes that watch you
know things you don't want
to know and buildings rise
in dirty towers like prison walls

magic, is there magic in
the peeling paint and papers
with faded words that
drip on the street in
rivers of blue blood
filling the sewer with more
politics and religion

magic, is there magic in
the lines that mark the spaces
where good and evil
divide and go their
separate ways leaving
the sidewalks for those
with empty stomachs

magic, there is no magic here
