I am New York City in one look,
a Cadillac of kisses, all night
Jasmine, hot shoulder blades,
a six-sided window,
I am broken, alien, a lone
letter in a stack of bills,
I am water, whatever the little girl said,
a second date on a new
night, the light from the podium, I am
stolen, nameless, photoplay,
a penniless divorcee, I am plot,
arranged angular, I am conflict,
I am New York City in one look,
I am all night barbershops, sidewalk
blessings, the winter of 1993,
one sick bed for two, I am
warm rain, hot pants, the man
left on the train, the one running beside it.
I am choreographed witness, enormous noise,
crushed cars, misty greed, scalded pistols,
ankles on fire, glowing clothes,
I am yours and only for a minute
a hot wired Paris, a Bengali refugee,
three midnights, hook after hook:
