The sights and sounds of a town

The pavements and the drifters

the placid pylons

and the demand for alterations

We will not wake the sleeping lions

with the sights and sounds of a town

Maybe with an opera? But not

the placid pylons

The pavements and the drifters

Will not wake the sleeping lions

And the demand for alterations

May be an opera

And a photograph of some desaturated, but not deflated, balloons.
