Looking at Liberty leading the people
What do you see?
The wooden floorboards that creak under your foot
As you shift your weight to sit on the bench
That groans and strains to hold you up
What do you hear?
With those devil-on-your-shoulder headphones wrapped around your ears
Still staring at liberty
What do you believe?
The hot air rising up from the metal grate that’s partially under your foot and wrapping itself around your leg
What do you feel?
