I see city dwellers resting on concrete seats
Day dreaming a thought or two
The fragrance of coffee wafting out into the street
Here’s to the situated sparrow poking and jumping about
Searching for his daily opportunity
Honking cars and fuming buses some filled with people, some without
All moving quickly with a purpose to somewhere
The city is buzzing about at cool summer 78 degrees
Red lights, green lights an old man afoot singing to himself unaware
Just think of what he’s seen in a lifetime
Buildings coming down and sky scrappers going up
Constant motion and change and crime
Kids on skateboards with I-pods in their ears
Dial up phones to cell phones in everyone’s hands
I wondered if he had a humming in his head throughout these years?
Or was he busy in the past reading books he’d already read?
Isn’t interesting all the commotion mankind makes
While a small bird eats the crumbs from a piece of old bread
