Lodinium - By Anna McCarthy Hoffman


History drives
Down the red roads,
Colored asphalt carpets
Not just for Bentleys
Jaguars, Rolls Royce
But rickshaws, Red buses
Mobs of weaving blue Bicycles
At weekends
Philosophy walks these
Stained sandstone slabs
Uneven and washed out
These sidewalk see-saws
Tottering toe-traps set to
Catch the young and drunk
By surprise
Civilization trips over these
Rounded, warn
Cobbled streets
Cracked teeth beneath her feet
With blackened gums
Chewing at her heels
