A Picture of My City

is impossible

because its beauty hides here

behind these bike paths

and here, with foodies

who’ve taken over highland

for trendy tapas

and here, these teachers

who can’t afford this dinner

but buy its delights

and here, at sunset

where the west was won (and lost),

where the gold reaches
