The City (2022 Poem 19)

Millions of strangers hurry to and fro
Working ten hour days
Then race to a broadway show
You can’t see when you’re in the maze

Cars rev past before day break
Sirens wail in dark of night
Subway trains make windows shake
Cops are here to break up a fight

The city is vibrant, it never sleeps
It expands your view of humanity
With poignancy to make you weep
Full of life and creativity

(Prompt: There are so many nature poems out there. Our prompt for this hour of the night is to write a poem for a city, real or imagined.)

  1. I love the vivid imagery here, the city scenes described are true for my city too…for cities everywhere….

    These lines are immensely beautiful :
    ‘Tbe city is vibrant, it never sleeps
    It expands your view of humanity
    With poignancy to make you weep’

    Superb!
