‘City’ Means

Another word for Armageddon; for Ragnarok

Legions routinely slain every day, only to arise fresh the next morning
The site of countless battles, daily… Hourly
Count them off… one apocalypse down on the hour, every hour
A myriad small and constant wars
Played out day to day season on season and year upon years
As the city lays itself down like sediment to sleep
over and over again along the banks of the River
Ruin upon ruin ever renewing and ever new…

And the Bridges straddle them all.
