I traveled down the central city street
in downtown, where the buildings frame the sky,
where architecture reigns, like mountain peaks,
and cars roam canyons made from formed concrete,
as trains and buses often wander by
the buildings bonded using bridge techniques.
These manmade monuments consume the scene,
and green’s a color seldom ever seen.
And yet, there’s beauty that your eyes may greet!
An ordered chaos sets this sight apart.
Unique detail provides esthetic treat,
while “ancient” often meets “state-of-the-art.”
Now note that smoky statement in the heat
that says that “Even cities have a heart.”
