Skyline by Scott Cumming

Skyline

The skyline shows us what we want to see.

A destination.

An aspiration.

Our expiration.

City lights blot out our nightly wonders.

The roosting scatters the morning dim.

The skyline shows what we want to see.

Forced isolation.

Growing alienation.

Damned desperation.

Sunset blinding us through the trees.

A squash of blue pushing against the gloom.

The skyline shows us what we want to see.

My resignation.

Loss of sensation. Prescribed medication.
