VISION OF URBAN MASSES DANCING UNDERGROUND

The P.A. at the Times Square shuttle platform calls:

Watch your step, please, watch your step.

First our feet, walking, tapping, pick up the rhythm:

Watch your step, please, watch your step.

Then shoulders dip; fingers snap, palms clap:

Watch your step, please, watch your step.

Overcoated bodies sway; commuters tango:

Watch your step, please, watch your step.
Watch your step, please, watch your step.

We enter the train. Doors close.
The voice is silent.
The train moves on.
