I love this City

The Opera last night "La Triviata" was amazing. Beautiful. NOW I've seen real opera. If you go to an opera, go to a standard Italian opera. Emotions make the language superfulous, although it's beautiful in it's own right.

I also love every morning I ride in I think how much

I love this city.

30 miles an hour
flying down 2nd Avenue
buildings rising like stoic dreams
on either side of me
concrete pavement smooth and glistening
in the morning rain
making the street lights bounce off
the red and black tires of my bike
streaming along with traffic
down the hill I see
the sun rising over the mountains
off in the distance
outside the framework
of the rising bustling city before me
