D unsized 223owntown Crossing rush hour,

a young black woman busker

plays her saxophone – Bach Invention No 3

 

Midnight, the slow movement

of the Moonshine Sonata

at Back Bay station

 

Park Street outbound train,

Love walked in, on the keyboard

stacks of blue CDs

 

35° in the shade, a boy

waiting for the Orange line hums

Sweet and Slow to sleeping twin babies

 

Dawn in Harvard Square station

on the escalators two drunks

sing Mack the Knife in harmony
