listening to the hum

the steady, streaming, breathing of the 

city.
people with eyes that watch both

the surface and the unspoken 

parts like learning 

the rules to a game for the first time.
hands, laughs, eyes- that 

firmly take and keep a certain sense of focus.

the city and 

its coming and going

people 

some with feet that glide 

but most with feet weighted

and dragged across 

as though forced to sing a lullaby or

love song.
the hum.

the hum.

silent and not.

the city.
