Puzzling on what piece of material is next to be taken, to be consumed, to have.

I observe the crowds, instead of watching into the shops, wondering when they get tired. At the same time: it's lively, cosy, full of energy and social engagement.

In this piece, written in E flat major, I use rather insisting some of my favorite intervals: the minor and major 2nd. Two notes very near to each other, resulting in those typical tight chords.
