Capping twenty-eight stories of brick for the pretty
The nightlight for the darkened city

A marker for travelers and wanderers alike
This northern star–our city light

Like a crown for the wealthy who live below
Angelic halo of halogen glow

Bats and pigeons peek on those passing by
For cocktails, movies, or a room for the night

An empty black canvas this view would be
Without the nightlight
We would see just bricks and trees

Spread the love
