most live-able city

rain on steel buildings drench

drops glisten down to the trench

most live-able city a yesterday this was

but never got over too much buzz

structures rise with the cost

all day rush hour spews exhaust

former citizens losing out on rents

new real estate is side-street tents

shops once shining with character and class

replaced with premium priced residential glass

i’m counting the days in sorrow and pain

till pike place crashes for a real estate gain

“seattle freeze” blamed on local lore

fails to see no locals here no more

I've called Issaquah, Mukilteo, Belltown, Ballard, Queen Anne, and West Seattle all home at some point. My main passions are skiing, skateboarding, producing and collecting music on analog media.
