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
