the sodium vapors
make me feel like i own the city
where i live like nothing is wrong.
it makes me feel like i own the night
even though sometimes the night owns me.
and i toss and turn through these feelings of restless wonder
of how life can be so perfect,
but so unfulfilled.
i dream dayless and sleep nightless
because i can’t get the thoughts out of my head,
but i can’t get my head out of the past to live presently.
these sodium vapors tint everything orange
and light the dark that is surrounding the night.
