Uptown (1987)

The warm summer nights
Beneath the flashing awning
Crowds, lines of moviegoers

The sweaty hustle
Street people making music
Making money, play

Children panhandling
Strutting through traffic, laughing
Birds, bright and feathered

Chirp, sing, beat their wings
Proud of their art and talking
Politics and coffee

Reading and writing 
Literature and philosophy
Smoke and poetry

Art films, alcohol
Love’s hand, in the balcony

The absurd theater
