By Thomas Page

Gwendolyn stands on a crowded street in Chicago looking at a bar
The men inside are playing pool. She
Looks past the simple smiles of the players. She
Knows that there is a disconnect between what she
Sees and knows about the people inside. She
Hopes to unlock the pageantry proposed each night, she
Wishes to free them from the fate imposed each Friday. She
Desires to be Vox Chicagonis chanting what she
Knows to be true about the men playing pool. She
Determined with her mission sets out where she
Will tell a story of a city so coolly composed.
