In Which I Share An Ecomium For A Secret City

I love Toronto; it's already known,
But there's Toronto and TORONTO, dig?
What I love best's the Laroquodal zone,
The Secret City Paul inhabits. Big
And lushly vegetated traffic isles,
Underground commercial PATHs that are
All but deserted after hours. For miles
We traipse through spaces unknown to those car-
Fixated types, those nine-to-fivers, those
Who see no use in emptiness. We find
A post-apocalyptic vibe just flows
Through all and find it sweet. The cast of mind
That lets us so enjoy it is a gift
That lets our transit seem joyous and swift.


  1. I love it! This one scans amazingly and pretty much nails the joy of all the cool places that are hidden untrafficked in plain sight.

  2. Thank you, my dear. This is the one that makes me most homesick for Toronto!
