Bleakness Can Be Inspiring

14 Jun

Bleakness can be inspiring:
A bloated river, a ruined city,
Pictures in an old history text-book;
A metropolis blinded by fog,
  Deafened by apologetic airline announcements;
A manual projection camera displayed,
Outside a renovated theater, taking the leap;
Scores of employees in funeral attires,
Walking back from their own graves.

    Loved it. Poem gathered from your recent travels?
    (BTW: The comma after displayed can be removed 🙂

      the ‘taking the leap’ was meant to apply for both the old camera and the new theatre.. so I could only put the comma there and hope it gets the desired effect…

      and ya, you could say so 🙂
