chicago

chicago, i am drunk
on your sun
green rolling slopes
daisies spread out in
wild abandon
blue blue lake.

long ago here
fiery preacher
moody
sought to save
from inferno
many dead
in awful fire
lost wealth and home
built lives.

and chicago, i am drunk
on your sun.

I am goose-pimpled, so very beautiful with the vestige I'd gone through. You opiate me moody too at your free verse.
