The city at night elicits feelings of summer nights
college parties and the wilds of my youth
About how time has passed
years gone by while the concepts of clubs, bars,
drinking, nights out on the town and mischief fade.
And we concede to memories
a line of shots, sweat riddled bodies moving in the dark and flashing lights.
Lights reveal all or nothing, small parts, small rooms and close quarters
Times were organic, fluid, spontaneous
Motivation was now, the reason was because and the times were spent.
Sweet whispers, chance glances
the city breathes at night beckoning forth
Come have a night on the town
Money spent, conversations had, reckless abandonment taken.
The city at night offers her embrace
suffocating and intoxicating.
At night the city is alive until the day breaks
The moon blows to the risings sun
Return trips, taxi’s, buckets and a new day.
Headaches, texts, video and breakfast are the remnants to
A City at night.
