1.16.11 – life x death x nyc

life x death x NYC
at times, to be birthed
we return into the earth
break dirt
break nights
the city breathes like  old lungs
smog smears shade in the sky
fingerpaint clouds
i wonder what those resting in nearby coffins must hear
the slowing heartbeat of metropolis
the muffled rave bass
the faint aroma of sweet, sweat, and energy
how can you find dreams
in a city that never sleeps?
