Duality

Streets are lined

up

and

down

With poised palm trees

meticulously placed

and stiff succulents

Collecting stray purple petals

from blooming jacarandas

Drawing eyes

away

from trash strewn alleys

glittering with broken glass

prismatic rainbows of poverty

the duality of

breathtaking beauty
