Manhattan

Looking out on Manhattan from Brooklyn: Thought 1 between Madison and Wonder

Up up upp

Adding more

To spill over

Sight into sound

‘Awws’ and ‘Ewws’

Jazz sigh blues, lovers’

News repeated in the park

In each-other and others’ ears

Close behind the train sound

Chases the river breeze East.

Looking out on Manhattan from Brooklyn : Thought 3 between Keap Street and Kalm

The water lapped the shore

When Brooklyn was battle

And the only iron was shrapnel

Now water laps the shore

Under engineered thunder at

4:41 and 4:45 and more-

Express thunder chud – feeding stakes

To cheese-creamed bagel picnics

But heat sits

None the

Less.
