The rain fell
From the grey sky
And soaked the
Cold streets,
Trickling down
jungle_400The cracks,
Flowing in rivulets
In back alleyways
And narrow laneways
Between the buildings.

The rain fell
On the old man
Huddled under
Newspaper sheets
In a doorway entrance,
It fell on alleycats
And flowerpots
On windowsills,
On the garbage
Truck making
Its rounds,
And the taxicabs
Lining up on
A quiet street.

It soaked
The people
Waiting at the
Bus stop,
And swept
Scraps of paper
And cigarette butts
Down grimy street drains.

I stood in
The doorway
Of a pub
With a scotch
In my hand
With loud music
Coming from
Inside and
The smell
Of incense
And alcohol
Floating in the air,
And I soaked it all in.

I loved
This city,
It was my city,
It was a jungle,
And I was a big
Part of it.
