A poem of great depth. A vivid depiction of a beautiful city in turmoil. Compelling imagery.

The poem is subtle in portraying the alienation and existential crisis which it does not speak about in reality.

Can anyone say a bad word about Maya's writings, her heart, her soul? I do not think I would like to meet the person who could- they may be the monsters that wait in the wings of history

Awakening in the city that never sleeps. Even in the hustle and bustle of city oe can still find a bit of relaxation. Enjoyed this one. Forever Maya.
