City Cloud

Poetry by | November 6, 2023

Plop, splodge, pump;
Water floods out,
Dark, blue, cold,
The city mutters out,
Man and Child and Woman abound,
All making the trip till sundown;
Walk, Step, Skip;
My sweat pours out.
Bulb, glow, streak;
Refracts the puddles around,
For it is raining,
In Davao’s downtown.
