At the end of suburban matrix

where the macrosphere meets

Industry and consumer briefly intersect

In the concrete world

where all dreams are asphalt

Orphaned sub-lots overgrown with weeds

Amid cement barriers wire and pipe enter the earth

like a needle into fertile veins

of a patient sustained on life support

Nearby the flies swarm

over pedigreed road kill

Their flesh feeds teeming masses extant

manna from heaven in their exile

as they flee their urban chains
