Chime

Standard

rushing about
no one hears
the clock chime

Urban

Standard

I. urban pause

sitting in traffic
the sun glints
off strangers’ cars

II. urban solitude

the city surrounds
my skin and bones
yet I am alone

III. urban sprawl

houses stand
where a desert
once filled my view

IV. urban garden

picking garden beans
a motorcycle
roars down the road
