Rain sat upon the city smothering sound
While casting its shadow over the landscape
An oppressive thing bloated and eldritch
It passed judgement, attempted to wash
Away the marks of man.
At times it sat quiescent on the hills
Its gaze observed – The constant hum of
Tangibility clashed with a distant
Barking while the city beat
Its feeble carrion heart.
Consumed greenery like some obnoxious
Cancer, red brick, coal stacks and etched granite;
Topped by verdigris competed with natures natural greens
My vision faded as the fog beast settled,
Encompassed me in its wet embrace.
