Steel drapes tumbled over a bustling audience, packing

welcomed summer tan toes and lemon shaped knees


The scene is not over but merely in a brief intermission

allowing children to laugh and parents to clamor over

Bloomberg, closing toll booths or aroused gas prices


Above humid flowers of heat, sprout shoe beaten pavements

causing a seasonal strife between clothing and harlot sprinklers

which will tease you with an unbounded sparkling aquatic hymns


In three stops a dozen suits with stamped faces will file in but

your cabaret is cuing a chugging orchestra continuing our show
