house by house · slipping away
the suburbs empty · streetlights douse
and parks accede · to slow decay

the signs go up · house by house

"in times like these" · we learn to say
while fever-eyed · the last carouse
dances in · a night made day

and tents in empty · quarters spawn
their hope of rescue · slipping away
