portraits of red and grey #4

by James Morehead

moscow bumps past
our bus rides pot-holed streets
bucking wheezing shaking
past grey towers
and a horizon of silent cranes ( surrounding )

it is monday
                    noon
there is no traffic but the sidewalks bustle
a green grey fur-topped stream

i look for colour
for red revlon nail polish
  or rich white milk ( it does the body good )
  or flashy silver corvettes
                                         to offset matchbox ladas

all my eyes find
are blank vacant spaces
i cannot look i cannot look away
the dirty glass between me
                                            and them

for an instant voyeuristic guilt
