You are the reason for everything beautiful in me.
I ♥ you forever, Mama.” —May
Up in the heights of the evening skies
I see my City float in sunset’s golden and crimson
I look and a great joy clutches my throat.
Plateau of roofs by canyons crossed:
windows by thousands fire-furled — gazing,
how the heart is lost
in the Deepest City in the World.” —Oppenheim
