night-time in a familiar city

The city at night is a new vision;
this city; empty dancers and full streets
a rattle swinging past midnight in a taxi driver's voice
this city; bars and men with ease
around women who are miles away at mind
strangers in the way the body takes shape into space
this is the new city at night: much too old similarities
stale cigarette buds and empty shot glasses
only the stars are silent these nights.
