The copper colored city stands alone
People living separate lives
In this big beautiful city
Will never know each other
Or the wonder they hold
And yet the city lives on

Standing tall along the bay
This city
Like a coral rock formation
Emerging from the waters’ below
Fosters a civilization where civility is standard
And nothing more, intimacy lost.

The streets are a masquerade, mirage of people
Weaving through the cold infrastructure
They go about their activity with nothing gained and nothing lost
They choose to live a life of simplistic obscurity
