everybody gets where they need to go


everybody gets where they need to go
the man wrapped in Glad bags
sporting shades to match
on the subway
with his cart and wares

everybody gets where they need to go
octogenarians crossing avenues
keeping time with teens
on the street
with their walkers and wheelchairs

everybody gets where they need to go
moms and dads with Juniors and Treys
running in 4/4 time
on the sidewalk
with scooters and keds

everybody gets where they need to go
before the sun kisses the sky
after dusk turns to twilight
in the city
that never sleeps
