    Some people were shouting out loud
    Seemingly in some mental rage
    Some were dressed in furs and the new Fendi bag in suede
    Some were in grief because they didn't get paid

    Black women push baby carriages with children with blonde hair
    Young guitarist played intensely
    Young poets read fiercely
    White-collar workers chatted briefly
    Homeless men shined shoes sparkling
    Young kids day dreamed deeply
    Squirrels climb trees highly
    Tourist took pictures quietly
    Saxophones played loudly
    Panhandlers beg for money discreetly
    Someone sat next to me
    Told me
    They just moved from Paris

    Dreams were being built
    Liquor was consuming guilt
    Ground zero was not in the front page as I sat and read the wall street journal in Washington square
