Body of the city

Corpuscles on four wheels
stream in the main arteries,
trickle in from
secondary conduits;
each one holding
one person or more.

They speed through the body
of the city.
Each person
brings a life
unfolding from second
to second.

The city lives;
we are too small
to see its face;
we hear some of its words,
we feel some of its breath;
it will keep on living
longer than you and me,
and it will change
until we of now
will not recognise it.
