The Great Figure

by William Carlos Williams

Among the rain
and lights
I saw a figure 5
in gold
on a red
firetruck
moving tense
unheeded
to gong clangs
siren howls
and wheels rumbling
through the dark city.

The illustration here was made thinking of this poem.
The city, the city
the lights, the smog, the noise
the people everywhere
the colour, the action.
It took me all day, 2 beers and some pizza ordered in.
