The hushed sounds of trees
dancing like bees humming
with the people
stepping to the beat
couples kissing in the heat
drip drop sprinkling the green
dogs digging in the dirt

All of a sudden
you turn the other way
Click clack high clapping the streets
SCREEETCH
HONK
FLASH
SMASH
cars covering the streets
a place to meet eat and talk
the steps of the met museum are there for it all
potholes melting
manholes sizzling
construction areas roaring
wannabe singers bellowing out
text tones ringing
yes call off the meeting

The Dow Jones is leaping
Crusading through the creaking streets
Chatter amongst all
You’re in New York City y’all

I love the pace of your composition it really gives you the feeling of being in the apple city. Keep up the good work. I can tell you are very creative. Sounds are also very appropriately managed. Good Job!!
