Another Jigsaw Poem

Baltimore by Telly Mcgaha

look closely:
this seaport still sparkles
over the icy harbor
where waters bite
and hide her cast aways-
syringe after syringe after syringe
not all the water can rinse
away her dirty secrets
up the hill
seven men raise a belated toast
to the lone town they love
the fantastic city for them
still seems to gleam
when masked in late night
flashing blue lights and snow
