Lakeshore Benediction

Living in Toronto
Changes how you love
Or maybe it's just
There's so much to covet
That you are hopelessly fractured
Unable to focus the totality of your affection
Into a person, artwork or discipline
But only and always, the city
Her streets inviting
Her histories, rich
Enough for any sorry Romeo
To die for
If he doesn't expect a sorrowful parting
In this city circus
Of a thousand stages
Where the dreamers dream
The greedy prosper
And the lost can wander in peace
