City Beats

As I walk the city streets and listen to the city beats my heart keeps time with every sound as precious memories abound I think of where I’ve walked before and those with whom I would explore of restaurants and laughter’s fill deciding who would pay the bill Aroma of fresh pop-corned air competes with fragrance everywhere hypnotic billboards, signs aglow distract as all the car horns blow And as I walk the city streets and clock my brain as it repeats I’ll not forget the days and nights of many fascinating sights

You captured the city well in your verse Mike, there's always something going on, the cities never sleep. Tom
