city city cityWe are the children of bright neon lights.
Rivers of high heels and black wheels racing.
Dazzle and glow illuminate the nights,
the fake smiling, the wanting, the chasing.
Flashing fluorescent extinguish the stars,
metallic mountains rising and rising.
The city consumes, becomes what we are-
powdered faces, plucked eyebrows, disguising.
The lights call out but we don’t hear our names.

It began on a train to Montauk.
Though two years ago,
as fate would have it
Joel and Clementine were lovers,
Yet the sadness had kidnapped their affection
And they decided to carve each other out of their minds.
It was a while ago when Joel decided to forget
