NYC Skyline


6am in the morning
The Greyhound bus goes through the tollgates
The traffic’s already getting a little thick
We roll on
Towards the Holland Tunnel

The NYC skyline appears
So massive
Awe-some
Intimidating 
Looming

The energy is unexplainable
God-like
But it’s not a God creation
It’s Man’s creation
All man-made
But with god-like energy
An energy that mimics God’s
Towers of Babel
So tall
So intimidating

You try to get a grip on the city
You try to get a handle
But just when you think you’ve gotten one
The massive jungle grows bigger
And bigger
And bigger

Out of all the cities
NY is just too damn big to get a grip on
You will never have total control
Or confidence
In this city

There is something in our brain
Or human nature
That wants and needs order and control
But this city denies it
