What I see when I walk down the streets of New York

In this city, where you find the street talkers talking
With the heat toters and the secret informers
And the straight talkers talking talk about
The gay walkers straight walking to the most talkative places in town
Where the gay talkers despite the naysayers and the player players
Talkin’ to the hip swayers and the lip savers
Silently sinking into the silver slivers of the sidewalk
And who will recognize the bad behaviors of the street enslavers?
With all the Jesus prayers sayin’ only God can save us?
And the rest of us hoping the street sweepers sweep the Jesus preachers
The street musicians musing over beat breakers,
Beat boxers, cardboard box home owners, stock brokers,
homosexuals, heterosexuals, ubersexual prima donnas,
Can finders, and part-time rip-n-rhymers
The post-election prophets, the political pundits
The hissing hustlers, environmental petition pushers
The calculator crushers, taxi stallions, and the handicap ladies on valium
Full-time waitresses, temporary delivery personnel,
Part-timers too, and all the young college girls screaming at each other, “I love you too”
And those weird dudes who ask you for a quarter or two
Not the homeless, but the hopeful hopeful that you’re their dream come true
But you save a few for the few losers of the manipulative market
And market those cents for a little sense
Catching the herbal scents from the Indians, the Africans
Ask them not anything but where the train is
It’s plain as any day to go astray on a New York day
And talk some funk with a bunch of shmucks
Your pants are sunk and the weather sucks
But you’re a traffic defyin’ street tawka
a street tawkin’ New Yorka

The Jose Vilson
