new york

100_1835

runway streets

highway lives

shiny decadence

elaborate ornaments

enticing invitations

flamboyant demonstrations

expectations of austentation

humility is a crime

fashion is a king

overthrown with time

this city’s soundtrack is rave music

upbeat techno

drugged up

nonstop

erratic and unyielding

forceful and unforgiving

people pressed close

hearts distant and cold

tapping fingers do the talking

cyber world gone wrong

the machines overruling man

this reminds me why i left

i left to catch my breath

i left to find rest

to find a nest

deep within myself

to know myself

to leave the gritty city

to navigate my own train

my own PATH

so, now i’m just a visitor

a tourist depending on maps
