Narrow Streets

Narrow Streets

no room for big 
belching automobiles
in these ancient
narrow streets,

and that's a thing
of beauty,

human scale
or maybe horses
with riders

could navigate,
some days ago,
a distant past

perhaps, 
more intimate.

today, they look
human-scaled,
and possible.

little sidestreets
lined with scooters,
filled with people,

walking, the way
people always
walked, together
or in little groups.

no room for big 
belchingautomobiles
in these ancient
narrow streets,

and that's a thing
of beauty,
