New York’s Facade – by DOMINGO CARRION

New York’s Facade

 

  Cyclists in the streets,

 

Time machines full speed,

 

More buildings than trees,

 

 Less oxygen to breathe,

 

 Man made light,

 

You call this a dream?

   

       Outshine sky’s sight,

                                                  

  Content with time,

 

        Fighting for life,

    

Carelessly spent,

                                                              

Stronger despite,

       

      Luxury,

              

      Rations,

 

“An easier life,

                                                 

               Possessive passion,

                                                         

tipped glasses,

                                                         

Creative flashes,

                                                          

       Frantic fashion,

                                                      

Material suicide,

             Drastic reactions,                          

    

                        Growth in time,

                                             

Numbers multiply,

 

              Madness justified,

   

Confined,

         

    In,

                                                 

A Facade of being alive.
