city breeze

town hall square

business suits in high heels
attacking the pavement

regulars in the corner
begging just 45 cents for a beer, mate

gum trees giving shade
but secretly wishing
they were somewhere else

heavy laden shoppers returning home
after patriotically helping the economy

two blokes playing electrical guitar
for an unchosen crowd
who could care less

buses screeching
commuters hurrying for their trains

urban polyphony of cells ringing

pidgeons and chicks
and lined-up japanese tourists

winners and losers all gather here
the rest of us just watch
and enjoy the city breeze

(9.1.3) Sydney
