Sunday with Dave: East Side

“East Side”

The ongoing by recombination,
the student defaced and the wounded harangued,
but there are the stationed,
garrison compounds selective cheapness,
alluvial soak of wealth, the ground hardens,
the cracking of statuary bases,
another has been fallen through,
a fixed anticipation, made expression of resolute penury,
hope, the scream to the felt, from
embarkations, a current abode,
the plodding of contracted missed anthropy,
a kick in the pocket calisthenics,
unsired mantras to spired despondency,
toll, bower, frock,
the anxiety in low flying hands clasped,
re-inert, the exchange has simmered,
loss must have its day wage,
in my caricature,
something of a silhouette hires savage pantomimes.
