“Los Angeles” by Brianna Vigil

I long for the loneliness of Los Angeles.
I miss its shiny exterior
and its hollow core.
I always find myself at home
in this dangerous labyrinth.
And when I get hungry,
I crave those small glimmers of hope,
the sweet twinkling sustenance
fed to me night after night.
I know I am so close
to the bedside
of a corrupted machine.
I watch the birth of beautiful clones 
and someday 
I’ll be part of that assembly line.
