The Great City 

I was an Adventurer,
a Woman on a Quest  
to know the streets to Babylon

Enticed by the Apple,
I pictured myself as some eccentric Annie Hall
attending the World's college campus,
quirky to the bone

I told myself I would not sink 
into the cyanide core of that Great City,
but I did not anticipate the one thing
that alters perception beyond Reason:

Love.
