Dusk - The City

Dusk - The City

A Poem by Guavaguy

A day in the city is a myriad of sounds, embrace it, live it, envision it.

A man walks to work in the morning

A woman rides the bus home

A man sleeps on the street, 
He has no home

A firetruck passes by,

A car chase ensues,
Police sirens screaming

A man is yelling,
A woman is crying 
Children are laughing,
Men are laughing,
Boys are laughing,
Boys drink soft drinks,
Girls play in the park,
A boy climbs a tree,
A cop yells at a boy for climbing a tree
The president is in town
Traffic everywhere
Cars honk 
A fight breaks out
Planes fly out of the airport
The skyscrapers are so tall

You live in one
You live right on the water
You enter the lobby
It is quiet
Feng Shui
Everything is in order
Not like in the city

You enter your one-bedroom apartment 
And look out the window
Foghorns and car engines
A long way to fall
Everyone looks like ants from up here
The sun has set
You're tired
You click off the lights,
and go to bed.
