lamentation for 2nd city: the lion’s roar



he lay there

languid in position

pissed in disposition


to break free from peering eyes

camouflaged by cotton candy.


he could smell

lake michigan strollers, bikers, runners

southside harold’s chicken, giordano’s pizza, and lem’s bar b que

margaret murphy-webb, as she sang

summer in the city

in hyde park


he could hear

the stepping jams

the rainbow fountain

the outer and inner drive traffic

echoing his roars


he could feel

incoln park


the magnificent mile

the blind man singing

79th street blinging


chicago  in his soul
