Analysis and comments on Night In Iowa by Deborah Ager

Comment 1 of 1, added on May 29th, 2005 at 1:08 AM.

A Night in Downtown Dallas (Coldhearted)

A single sheet of bluish haze transposed for stars above my city.
What once was green, is gray. Empty towers. Long shadows. Rats
I cannot see are scuttering down the alleys, picking their way
through puddles past a coat that keeps a heart from winter.
I slip past the huddled mass and hope there is no child, too.
