Sunset City

I can feel it

The sun sets in the west
Over a dusty city.
Its heart beats and it is alive.
Its veins crawl with vehicles.
Its lungs swell with voices.
People jump across the synapse
Of crosswalks.
I've lost you in the city
Among the throngs of beings
Hurrying and snapping pictures.

I can see you

Your cheshire smile in a sea of faces
Slowly dissapated
With time and distance.
The yellow taxi took you away
Into the heart of
The dusty city.
Among the lights and energy
The bodies, the cars
The pavement is hot from the day long sun
And the running
And the snapping pictures.

I wont find you
Unless I look.
