In the sunshine, the weight pushes down on the city

The moments, fleeting, pass

Unremarked, with a bored disdain

In a phosphorescent flash

A plume of magnificent light

Shouldering the downward thrust

Doldrums turn to sailing winds

Dreams of another future dawn

Bubbles of hope surface

Flights of fancy depart

Bound for unknowable horizons

Far beyond these dreary shores
