A small boy lies
impaled on a wrought iron fence.

This is no kind of dream.

He knows he is there,
he can feel it.

    yes,this is a good poem,but only after i reread it.
    it’s a raw description of existence pur sang.
    i imagine regions like basilicata and calabria in italy,where the n’drangheta reigns.the bronx,compton,cabrini green.le banlieu de paris.
    london and manchester periphery.amsterdam and rotterdam.and the megalopolii of the underdeveloped world.o.k.it woke me up.
