URBAN HERO • by Timothy M Daisy

His was the last house

standing, risen out of

the cracked earth, a

monolith made of brick

and stone. Wanting to

remain, a safe house for

a gentle recluse.

 

And those proud and tired eyes

bury a deeper wisdom,

looked straight at you,

dignified and settled.

 

Fearless.

 

 

 


Timothy M Daisy is a writer and musician living in Chicago.
His poems are reflections on his time spent in the big city.
The diversity of the people and the many events that have shaped his life.
