Los Angeles Calls and Drawls Back (SONNET)

Image

Everyone comes here to escape- Freedom!

Seeking the sun, which stands so low- The thrill

of winning a gamble. Reflections

of palm trees in a hundred dollar bill.

 

I think of home, and for this city I bleed

I think of home, and I hear these stories told,

under low buildings. It gets used- Agreed.

But I´ll forever miss people being bold.

 

As I wing my free way through these stirring skies,

I´ll sing this song taught in the tinsel town

A song of hopeful success, an essence

that I´ll bring to my city without crown.

 

Beyond my content notion of bareness,

I will come back and fill this emptiness.
