Powerlines criss-cross the city,
Currents of energy coarse through its veins.
High culture, pop culture, faith, ‘race’, muscle and money
Weave their patterns and vie for control.
A spaghetti junction of influences moulding metropolis;
Liquid life pouring the world into its urban mould.
Power flows and disrupts; Draws in and pushes away.
Blood flows, life force Blocked, rationed, hoarded, controlled.
Powerlines criss-cross the city,
Light up the shadows for those with a key.
