Napowrimo Day 1

As the storm passed, and fog disappeared
The city framed into its zones and boroughs
Shimmered brighter than ever
Under a livid sky, all the red bricks
Appear alike to an alien eye
A row of Indian shops open their rainbow neon hearts late in the afternoon
Shutting their fluorescent teeth right before sending off its secrets with the second last train
Billboards allowed to stay up all night under blinding halogen lamps
As half the city sleeps, we see fewer unfamiliar faces
And I can count the steady beating of our hearts
You surface in all my waking moments here
While I stay trapped in the beauty of this free night
