UNDER THE BRIDGE

The resolute rattle of time-worn trains above.

The animated laughter of rosy-cheeked children below.

The emphatic blast of a passing ferry’s horn.

The torrid whispers of soon-to-be lovers on the grass.

The irrepressibly hopeful street vendor hawking his wares in the distance.

No city built on cowering silence this!
