For a Gaggle of City Planner Types

Underground, block by block
the secret workings of cities
count their tocks against the bang
and cough of steam pipes.

And the shadows pulse as we knew hearts would,
the veins and arteries tangling and lewd
our figures silhouette
the sheet’s slow swoon
and rush hour’s coming bounding.

In the dusk that follows the horizon,
where stars and peaks of mountains
give a geological smirk to the heavens
and twitching stars wink out

while city lights prick blooming heathers
all along their shake and shout
and twinkle down where mortals frown
striding city streets.
