queen street west / by Rami

In basso profundo
          melodic sweetness
the well-dressed old man sings about
          ...all the motherfuckers on this street...

Snow swirls in sparkling light
on the street busy with
streetcar motor car pedestrian traffic.

Windows adorned sing seductive
          melodies of consumption
and a woman dances in
assless leather pants.

Severe snow warning.
