I see you from my place in the traffic jam,

                                       following your shadow, away from the sun,

                           Your back to the city,

                           In a heavy leather coat too long

And a plastic bag

Bottle shaped,

                                With your head hung low

                                And your plastic bag

                                And your leather coat

                                                With your back to the sun

                                                                Walking away

                                                                from the city.
