In The City


In the busy streets
At crossroads and junctions
Down every road
In the stiffling heat
And in all the smoke
In the heavily trafficked avenues
And hot, hot lanes

In the evenings
In the heavy wind that blows through my hair
In the glow of the setting sun
In the soft light that slowly dims the vibrancy

At night
In the glitz and sparkle
In all of the city lights
In high rising buildings
And the glamour of the shops
In the silent corners
Half dark, but still a shadow
Of the flirting city lights beyond
In every eye
Though they can afford no more than a fleeting glance at me
And in every face
That floats past mine

In every nook and corner
Of this giant establishment
In every part
Of this city
I see only you
