This City

January 23, 2017
By , Kingston, Canada
There aren't any high rise buildings
in my city.
There are no
towers with pretty lights
or underground clubs
rife with criminal activity.
I've never witnessed
a mugging
or even heard of
a long chase down a fire escape.
At night,
the lights are out
as sleep rolls in like the tide.
Old souls
comment that the earth
is made of time,
while the young
scoff at such sentimentality.
My city
is earth
is time.
