From 56th and 5th Avenue…

Paused at the corner of this steel-glass canyon
Neck craned back into the dithering blue,
The citywise swarm parts, unnoticing
Too busy anymore to even mock
this bumpkin’s indulgence:
“Ooh – look at the pretty building!”
Yes, but the moon, too.

(I finally got a couple of hours away
from the office to just walk. Now my feet are sore, but my brain is
feeling much better. Still, New York is like an alien planet to me,
where the air’s just a little too thin for me. A few hours out, and I
have to lock myself back in my room to recover.)
