The edge, frontier, or border of a city. All sorts of interesting things can happen when you cross these limits. For instance, you might be able to buy alcohol if you enter into a city, or you might escape a speeding ticket if you leave the city.

On the hill at the city limits
He waits for his bus
Perched at the edge of his park bench
Watching the start of evening rush hour

Long strings of blinking red lights
Wind through the streets below
As the tall buildings above them
Disrobe their shadows

In his tightly fisted left hand there is
an envelope, folded in half
It holds a handwritten letter:

Read twice, Crumbled once

On the hill at the city limits
He waits for his bus
Perched at the edge of the day’s conclusion
Watching the city grow dark
