Noir City, Part 2

You walk through the streets of the city
It's dark and it's sleazy and gritty
The sidewalks are cracked
the decks are all stacked
"taps" the official town ditty

This is Noir City, part 2 of 5. Pic: A frame from Black Friday
(Arthur Lubin, 1940),
from Six Martinis and the Seventh Art.

Don't you mean dark and gritty? That is, hard to read?

Hard? Nay, impossible.
On MY monitor.
If only I had a merrimac.
