renewal project

orphaned shell
left unclaimed,
built back where no
street had aimed:
no running water,
outlets all dead,
radiators cold -
abandoned head!

ghostly rituals of
homeless thoughts
curl up in corners
chancing their squats;
gray lines on gray
second-hand disguise,
each shadow hiding
hollow eyes.

when roads go through
as is said they would,
don't preserve this 
run-down neighborhood,
and when it's leveled
to dusty heap,
demolish it as
its tenants sleep.
