Monarchs do grace a delicate rose
As a wispy wish floats by
Behind the wrought iron fence;
In contrast to the broken glass
In colors of green
Smelling of cheap wine.

Weathered beggar crouches.
Scrawled cardboard sign “will work.”
I whisk by with sweaty brow furrowed.
Thirsty children play and fight,
Shaded in the tall doorway.
Brick tenement shows wear.
A cabby honks,
Exhaust insults lungs;
Wavy designs rise in the air,
Hot sidewalk burns my soles.

I yearn for cool,

"If you have the chance to sit it out or dance, I just say Dance." writen by Mark Sanders recorded by LeeAnn Womack
