In this proud town
Battered and bold

20131230-232145.jpg
Amid empty spaces
And darkened windows like blind eyes

20131230-232311.jpg
Come shops and little restaurants
and bars
Glints of life like pea shoots

Pushing through hard rock
Determined, unafraid to flash
A brash smile
Or a history
Of music and muscle cars

Amid broken windows and shells of buildings
Glints some future starting to spread.

Said the pretty waitress with the brilliant tattoo and winking eyes:
“I’m a
Detroiter, and proud to be here.”
And so was I.
