A HOMOPHONIC TEXTURE

Hail again
there—proud
and silver trans-
verse fluted
stainless partner!

It's invigorating!
to see
you out here
next to me—shedding
sparks and peeling
down
your old
familiar path again!—say, would you

care to dance a while?—maybe
just for half—or
so—a city mile? down
alongside
the wide Dan Ryan—
past tacit do-si-do-
ing hybrids, buzzing
cruisers,
pickups plunking

southbound while the rumbling
semis keep a steady
booming
basso-continuo going?
I'm sure you remember—the tune

plays pretty
brisk out here, but don't worry—
you can always
take a little

grand pause ahead

at maybe—
Garfield,

63rd
or even,

69th, or
something!
