    SALIDA DEL SOL SOBRE LA CIUDAD DE LOS ANGELES
    (Sunrise over Los Angeles)

    An American Metropolis with its own pleasures and pains
    Where the avenues are the arteries, streets and boulevards are the veins
    Conglomeration of many flavors that makes for a catalytic mix
    Of culture and diversity and heritage between and betwixed
    Sleeping in the twilight crowned with municipal jewels
    While at the same time, the subconscious night-life lives by its own set of rules
    Living, loving, dancing, talking, romancing,... interacting
    Reveling in a wrecklessly responsible existence, with a time of reckoning to be exacting
    Characters, both shady and sincere, approach with propositions that involve ...
    Temptations to varying degrees,... a test of ones resolve
    True natures masked by the words they choose not to say
    True colors that can only be seen by the light of day
    Faceless motives gain form as inhibited restrains are released
    Coming to, for as the sun rises in the east
    Awakening a city, that for everyone -- more of less -- has something to give
    The sun rises over Los Angeles,... the city where I live
