To a city

City living drives me wild.
I love the lambent neon lights,
the wide-awake in dead of night,
the sound of parties, the sound of fights…

The distant crooning of a saxophone,
the sound of traffic,
buzz and tone of
bright and graphic signs
advising me to
buy, buy, buy!

The open after hours,
gleaming heights of
mighty towers looking down
on everything.

The yellow skies
on noisy evenings…
