Chrome, Dressed In Gold

Gold StreetsThe streets are painted in gold,

The day is silk and sold,

Fitted and round,

The streets burnt down,

Wrap your arms around,

Acquire and count,

The colour of gold takes down,

Our town,

In greed and avarice,

The hues of wealth,

Linger on the lips of profiteers,

The night is satin and crystals,

Loose and equilateral,

The streets paved in gold,

But burnt beyond control,

Our town is chrome,

Dressed in gold.

  1. Loved the imagery, quite interested by the chrome gold comment at the end, if I’m interpreting correctly, the town’s pretending to be something it isn’t? Well written, and loved the picture 🙂
