down in the dumps

3 Apr

i can no longer participate in the pop-up parties

keep those flash mobs far away from me

i can see them though

rarely taking their eyes from their smart phones

i can see it all inside that pleasure dome

while i

a homeless tourist with no particular agenda

just the wind from across the bay

and the flickering lights of the bridge

beneath a full cold moon

a slow deliberate application

relentless in it’s accuracy

down in the dumps

with those who know only their own desperation

from one minute to another

the status update remains the same

ugly selfies

gathered together with only an insane banter

for our entertainment

not even the pigeons hang around for long

here outside the pleasure dome

a dull and listless mob we are

dark upon the ground we lie

all our flash has long gone out
