Full of Strangers

   By it's nature the Metropolis provides what otherwise could be given only by travelling ; namely the strange.
  [Cities] are not like suburbs, only denser. They differ from towns and suburbs in basic ways, and one of these is that cities are by definition, full of strangers.

Not Dark Yet

Shadows are falling and i've been here all day
It's too hot to sleep, time is running away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I've still got the scars that the sun didn't heal

Seen Such Smiles

           The smile that folded the puffed eyelids and creased the sagging cheeks was fixed and forced.  I'd seen such smiles in mortuaries on the false face of death. It reminded me that i was going to grow old and die.

Nothing Could Be

          All things had opposites close by, every decision a reason against it, every animal an animal that destroys it, the male the female, the positive the negative ...... Nothing could be without it's opposite bound up with it ...........
