Luminous city, translucent city,
illuminant city, luminary city, dazzling city,
bright city, shining city, glowing city,
twinkling city, gleaming city, incandescent city, sparkling city,
transparent city, candle lit city, back lit city, burning
city, flickering city,
city of angles.

The city's full of every present,
a bowl spilling nows down the sides.
Every person ever here is still here,
the buildings stand in multi-exposure,
we pass through people that are dead
to us, who pass through people they never
imagined. From above, the city's undefinable--
shifting like gasoline in a puddle,
a video of a chess game speeded to
