There’s No Dancing in Downtown

This city is supposed to be a concrete jungle,

  but it’s turning into a glass desert

  under policies that keep sterilizing it

      of personality,



I see a red door and the HOA wants to paint it beige

This is why we can’t have nice things

This is why even the hip head out

  to suburbia

  and your storefronts stare out

        onto the streets like dead-eyes

Eyes of ghosts all wide with

  shock and surprise

        not sure why they died

I see a dance floor and the HOA wants it sanitized
