This City

This city’s beautiful
Decrepit — nascent
Hazily bright
Genuine
Cliche

This city’s angry
Defiant
Resistant — resilient
Changing
Nostalgic

This city’s mad
Possessive — detached
Isolated
Intertwined
In your mind,
Dreamily light
On your shoulders,
Sitting heavy

This city is heavy
Victorious — defeated
Incessant
Non-chalant
Bustlingly unproductive
Provocative — demure

This city’s a ghost rebirthing
The lively dead
Hopeful — depressed
Boiling over the edge
Passion

This city pushes away
Tugs back the heart
Tearing us
Apart
Crashing us together
Come closer
Home

This city’s calling
Peace
