when city lights dance like drops of rain
dribbling off of window panes,
when the urban noise of trains and planes
for seconds seems to call your name,
when chalk on sidewalks rolls away
and colors form and mix with grays, 
when little tides have kept at bay 
the garbage dumps of yesterday,

the garbage man will catch his trash,
the rain will rinse the chalky ash,
the trains will break on rusty tracks, 
and city lights will fade to black




For all you city folks.
The city is really pretty to me, and (FOR SOME ODD REASON) all the stuff that other people are disgusted by,
like trash, and graffiti, and dirty roads, I find kind of beautiful.

Thank you! I'm glad you think of New York when you read! :la: I live in Chi-town, but New York has always kind of been a place of "big dreams" to me, and I've always kinda wanted to go there \ o / There, and other places, of course!

Thanks so much! New York is a pretty popular place, I see! My dad tells me stories about it a lot C: I drew a lot of inspiration for this from my own city, but New York is just as beautiful :heart:

Ah~ :) New York city is pretty much the only city I've been to so I don't have much frame of reference, but I really like it. If you ever get the chance to go, you should go to the huge toy store. XD
