    Michigan Avenue



    In hordes of Christmas shopping, the sea-swell of pedestrians

    Rolls along the sidewalk and on every block

    The bell-ringers, God bless them, where do they all come from,

    With their silver trumpets and their uniforms and their caroling?

    My father gives ten dollars and I give a dime.



    Outside the fur stores, the protesters are harrowing,

    Some sit in cages, talk openly across bars, others hold up

    Signs to remember as barrel-chested policemen

    Shoulder through the crowd.



    My father says if we are vegetarians then maybe we shouldn’t be wearing

    leather,

    And he has a point—but I tell him that I’m not that kind of vegetarian.

    Finally we arrive at my father’s building, where he lives. The doorman

    Is grinning cheerfully, the warm air is pleasing.
