  1. If you read the poem out loud and fast enough, you can hear the train going below the street (Subway)! Thanks S. Clever! 🙂

  2. I love this! It perfectly captures how I feel each time I step out onto the street in NYC. I like that “smells” made it up so high in the poem 🙂 The city certainly has a lot for each of our senses to absorb.
