I stood in a metropolis of sound.
Where a trumpet serenaded
Tapping fingers
on the dashboard of passing cars,
Where a drum reverberated
The rhythm
Of incoherent footsteps through the streets,
Where a woman and child
Swayed to the swing of the city,
Unabashed, unrestrained, unrestricted
On the corner of a sidewalk square.
There, in the perfect sanctuary
Of people
People walking, people talking,
People living
There, I saw the trumpeter, and drummer.
The woman and child
Who swayed to the swing of the city.

Very few things hold my attention when I'm walking through downtown Chicago, but my memory of this event still vibrates with life.
