You may have caught on to the tongue-in-cheek nature of some of these poems.

“The Valley” by billimarie.

THE VALLEY

Full of people
empty of people
these streets wear histories
reverend stretchmarks along
tattered boulevards.

I’m still unsure if I meant to use the word reverent instead of reverend. What do you think?

* For the record, I actually really love the Valley. Funny what time and space does to our perspective.
