Review of "Tale of Two Cities" by Mark Jarman

"Tale of Two Cities" by Mark Jarman was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on August 28, 2013.  The poem muses upon the interesting notion that a city can be at once beautiful and horrible.  Images of decay abound in the first half, while more pleasant nostalgic images dominate the second.  The final line, a stand alone stanza, summarizes nicely:  "The hated city.  The loved city.  The same city."
