Urban Heat

Written by: Matthew Anish

The city swelters 
mercury nearing 100 degrees
The crowds are really feeling the hear 
Steam rises from the street
As workers with shovels dig out the asphalt
Urban hear is something you remember 
The sexy outfits of the young women in the city 
Makes life bearable 
The endless spectacle that is our metropolis 
leads us to believe once again
Urban Heat
We walk feeling the rays from 
the sun on our heads
The air is thick 
As the day wears on 
stars appear in the night sky over the city 
The air cools 
At twilight you decide 
how best to survive summer in the metropolis 
Stars appear in formations in the sky 
Tomorrow is a long way off
