You Didn’t Hear This From Me – Chris Morgan

The Giant Baby

“The city is overrated,”
is easier to say once the city is flat.
Leaving aside those jutting rungs,

spared by the swinging chubby arms
of otherwise certain annihilation.
They are spires of civic mourning
to be sobbed upon by citizens now
with fewer things to do
and fewer places to be.

A girl like you would collapse at the edge of the dunes,

Water spent. Bones for the sun.

No one took it as a joke 
Originally at the library 
before they closed down the road 
way out of my bubblegum.
