The City's Whispers

Try walking alone one night
on some bright city street.
Listen to the noise and
confusion and chaos that
swirl around you,
like the music you remember
hearing the first time
you fell in love.
Listen hard,
because intricately woven
within every sound that
passes you by
is a whisper,
a quiet voice
that speaks with the
wisdom only
an aged and learned city
can possess.
And if you ever manage
to fade away from
the reality of it all,
leaving only the
intertwined rhythms
that tell the stories of
all the people this
great city has seen,
the words will finally make
themselves clear:
"To live, to learn, to love,
it takes two..."

I imagine this as written about Chicago or New York...you can't hear this in Phoenix..the sun burns off the city's sounds.
