Winedrunk Haikus Part 4: NYC 2003-2005

schlepping the midtown
where's my dignity

e 40th street
the cranking subway girder
a warm blanket

swarming june
the bobbing heads
in bryant park - a sea

so cold in the sun
where's the east river?

all moody
new york skies
like sad, aged men

ah, east river
where's your heart?
wednesday afternoon

chrysler building
like a lonely friend
across the plate glass

sopping monday
a warm turkey sandwich
daydreams of frank o'hara

ancient brooklyn
glows behind you

sunday morning
court street
there's whitman's ghost

rain on my scalp
autumn rolling its
soft tongue
