The City Speaks

The city’s heartbeat throbs

Beneath my feet,

I can feel the heat

Of the roads

That form like veins

Connecting & Carrying life

To and fro –

The city is aglow

With activity.

It swells with the bustle

Of urban energy,

So many variables

Generating complete entropy

The city speaks!

If you listen

There is music in the rythm

Of this asphalt jungle.

The windows create a prism

With precise angles that reflect

& shower light above our heads

I hear the city speak

& what it says

Is to continue to grow

But not forget history.

To be original & unique

But remember common humanity.

To choose acceptance & peace

But fight for change and equity…

The city speaks

When you are ready,

To listen.
