City Photography

Do you see me?

Blurred out in the forefront
of your picturesque scene,

do you see me?

I am the ingrained graffiti
crystallized within the cellular walls
of your conscience,
disgendered by your scrubbing
clean the city litter
in the corners of expanded shadow,
but voiced with an all too familiar
vulnerability
because in the blanked space

you see me.

You see
the distorted angles of your shape
in the contrasting cast
of an outside light
you imagined haloing
your silhouette
when it all ever did was threaten
anyone’s chance
that they might some day
be able to

see me.
