4/3/11


Zigzagging the east thirties
to work up a burrito-
worthy appetite
Lexington and 37th
the first Manhattan
street I set foot
on as a tourist
eight or nine
years ago and it feels
the same
I tell myself and
almost believe it
oh well
so you lose something
being someplace a while
not a big deal
if what you get
in return is better
weather warm enough to read by
and the Empire State's
colors for tonight are
blue, blue, and blue
