City by the Bay

The fog lingers like a fox,
waiting for his next unsuspecting victim,
sauntering over the hills only to envelop the water in a dark mist,
he preys on the surrounding area,
flowing like water down a stream,
slowing only to stalk its next meal,
slowly draping the rust stained metal carcass in waves of haze,
lowering his body to sneak under the nose of the next target,
before the city knows it, the concrete land is veiled in mist,
incapable of escaping its dark fate,
only the tips of the buildings are able to escape the grey shroud.
