  4. “The City is So Big,” is the poem that best creates a vision or an idea of the city. This is because the poem depicts the regular city life that a person goes through. How the subject goes about riding a transportation to work with other big city people like he was; how busy the streets were during lunch filled with big long lines and music; and he suddenly found himself transforming into the culture of the city but still maintained his identity. This poem has shown a vision of how fast pace and how busy life in the city is. People get caught up with their daily routine that they gradually transform into moving machines ready to work and rest as their motto.
