A Poem by Oswald James

the haunted elevator
by Oswald James

down to the basement bar
with the ghost vibes
and inflatable skeletons
out on the terrace
we overlook the antennae
a calliope drones in the distance
and the drunks stumble
down the river walls
a fog lifts the bridges
the suburbs don’t exist
a fire fades forever
and an inner flame
collides with a sonic fortress
that no one ever visits
but is well photographed, nonetheless

Oswald James owns and operates Alta Real Pictures, a film/video production company based in Austin, TX
