Her Sky is Never Black

the city is beautiful tourists spend one night
with her go back home tell friends

the city is beautiful laid out
on maps helicopter rides

the city is beautiful from space
electric surface stars

the city is beautiful in spring
her light rain the dampness of her breath

the city is beautiful in summer
her heat rippling above the asphalt

the city is beautiful in fall
her hair blown back that girl walking

the city is beautiful in winter
her whiteness the warmth indoors

the city is beautiful the birds
perched along her windows

the city is beautiful she is on fire
the smoke loiters on her streets

the city is beautiful hazy
orange yellow suburb nights

the city is beautiful she is silent she opens
her mouth the first time each morning

the city is beautiful standing steel above
neck craned back take in her scaffolding

the city is beautiful she is cold
she is made of stone

the city is beautiful
her sky is never black
