The city that abandoned us.

I have seen the best
views in this city.
Head in the clouds.
(Don't look down!)
So much beauty in a
place that has forsaken
us. (Mother and I.)
She does her best to get by.
Raised me mostly on her own
and it shows in her tired eyes
and wrinkles.

I will do what it takes for
her to hear the ocean roaring
below blue skies at three a.m.
instead of the sirens that haunt us.
