NYC Waking

STREET LIFE AT NIGHT

Humor me

from Silver Towers Looking Out

and Down on 42nd Street

keep demons far away

at bay along the Hudson gray

Hells Kitchen marinade

 

Poetry begs to find form

begets brush stroke

As you wish, my Muse friend

Blown upon a summer cool front…

A reedy, spit soaked woodwind suffolk symphony

Brash BRASS section blaring, begging

 

Attention

 

The wind and rain and I

remain unscathed

Glad to be here

inside the upscale

up high above the whistling

catcalling curling cat tail seductive light display

Sons boroughing on borrowed Stuart Parr Ducatis

to satisfy a hungry curiosity for speed

 

Not I. Instead I’m happy in this Silver Tower greed

This foot thread, pull and pour into

a pancake mold

foot treadle

equipped for

 

Zzzzzzzip

 

Silver Tab jean pocket of Lucky Brand

Manhattan mummy

fitted sheets and leather

I’ll call couched

 

Safety

 

A pocket mouse named Poppy.

From this space

I’ll be a wannabe painter poet mystery woman

AVI

a safer happy sound here

 

Snug

 

removed and safely tucked.

Understitched and hemmed in

shortlived REM

Tired

a second hand grand sampler newshand

sleeping on the sidewalk

 

Understand

 

The city is alive with lights

and night sounds

of every shape and color

of marsupial

of Siren sound and Mermaid sculling.

Night coffee

Cappuccino urethane in finding

voice

in humming

a chorus of cicadas flying

While at my pounding feet

the lifeblood runs fresh spilt

to browning Apple peels.

 

Safe am I

 

Free to catnap,

free from jaws of great white sharks

on Bryant Park big screens

Big screams

From steel crossbar, to sidewalk gum drops

polka dotted skyline

a forty story crane cross stitch cross fit

hooked chain gang boom

hangs Keith Ledger

A new Batman?

Who will be the hero?

nightside project airwaves Spiderman….

Manhattan South police

force on the beat trying to….STOP traffic

 

think I’ll go back to sleep

and dream another dream

for WordPress

a lesson for my schooling

Come be audience to all that's wet and wild in her stories, poems and thoughts. Instructor by day, super hero by night, and mystical mermaid by summer.
