Roads

By Elvira

Roads                          made                           of bone
turned to Stone
Flesh                            elastic, now carrion
for the life of others.

No ONE notices
the material                                        that became Rome
Babylon
New Amsterdam.
Blood               shed —             some wiling
others              victims
of time and space;

Sepulchers
Bulldozed                    for Plastic citizens
Hollywood
Las Vegas
Monaco;
Cities said to be
monuments to greatness
Yet,

The citizens                 of                     the tombs,
will                  become Roads
to                     No Where
Except
to external
Sleep.
Cities
Plasticized
to atomic
lives
FOREVER.
