Same coin, different sides of the Charm City – A poem

Same coin, different sides of Baltimore City serving as a metaphor; via photgraphy and prose.



Am I not your brother
or is it
that am I
heavy?

Is this why
you’ve allowed me
to suffer under
the bevy
of inhumanity?

Is this the fate
of the wretched
or the spoils
of the
contradictory
attempting
to convince
my eyes
of a cruel
fallacy?

This malady
of our
vainglorious
inhumanity.

Same coin, different sides.
