Silver City

In this silver city
In this bright metropolis
Intoxication reigns
sunshine gilding metal
Contemplating
Drink in hand
the firebrick redness
of the veranda slabs
What is this liquor
But slow-acting poison?
But we are the destitute
The grey scum of humanity
And they are disposing of us
Gradually with detached
And brutal efficiency
