Midnight City Sensory Overload, #November Notes, Day 15

#November Notes, Day 15, Song Prompt: Midnight City by  M83


Midnight City Sensory Overload

Days of touring sun burned arches,

       dust rising from each boot step,

awed by steam rising from a hot pool,

        the pungency of sulfur,

the cawing of a Stellar Jay,

        its cobalt blue an artists’s depiction,

waterfalls splashing icy flows,

      the cliffs

           the canyons

                peace filling




At midnight the highway carries you toward glare, desert nightmare of neon, noise, cars, the same heat hotter here. You’ve arrived at midnight city sensory overload.
