narrow sky

cold wind
rushing bold between buildings
teaching the city how how
hard edged
accumulating shadows
on the floor
leaves like forgotten cornflakes
like tissues
stuffed in her pinafore
that 
one 
green 
leaf
this season 
confesses to the kerb
to the demi god grotesque
ness
of shopping centre chivalry 
on the altar
an eyebrow bar cappuccino 
double skinny latte buy one 
get one free Disney 
Princess
prays on her knees
for more
more
more
gathered in intricate dusk
light complex
compelled
into winters momentum
cars collide meta
phorically
impatient cocoons
moon a mountain
in the narrow sky of I
I
I was meant to tell you
me
me
me
just a slither
severed
into sentences

very cool portrait. I love the response. Such a metaphoric flow here, I love that, combined up with some excellent lines and lots of very neat abstract imagery here as well, love that, and I see myself thinking in abstract quite a bit. Strong piece. Thanks for sharing tonight.

smiles...dont need no more disney princesses, they dont stand up well to the wind between the buildings you know...just dont sever that sliver into too thin a sentence you know...smiles.

This is very creative and I loved the imagery. The title is pitch perfect.
