The Alley - 10 word poem, written in mid to late 1990's

My alley is my kingdom,
and the shadows are my minions.
Blessed by the spirits,
I'm trapped in this dungeon.
The cats are my protectors,
from the bright realm of reality.
No one dares enter,
my blood stained fantasy.
The sewage stench penetrated
my nostrils to my vertebrae,
and the barricade to reality
began to decay.
Violence and sex began to form a bridge,
into my alley,
violating my beautiful wreckage.
There was a string of light,
that lit up my alley,
fading away,
my realm of fantasy.
