The Freedom of the City #poetry #poem

I walk the streets once more and feel
the freedom of the city
after being absent for so long
freedom of
sweltering summer heat
sweating in the shade and
aching swollen feet
freedom of anonymity 
freedom of all life in one day
freedom of history mingled with modernity
freedom is salty sweat-tang
freedom is sunlit street
freedom is the rhythm of
human life, imperfect 
yet perfect 
for today
I feel
the freedom of the city.
