with another pair

with another pair
of eyes, we were admiring
the lilacs in the

garden – it is spring in new york,
and nothing beats staying outside

on day two, we raced

on day two, we raced
our way up sixteen stories,
breathless with the wind

new yorkers in new york, before
the throng of out-of-towners

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: breathless

we will spend these only

we will spend these only
in new york
years,
twisting,
twisting,
like a cat
in mid-air,
waiting to
land on our feet

everything that is

everything that is
magical about a train
ride is not the train

ride – i stare out the window,
penn station to penn station,

new york city to
baltimore, the moving pictures
shimmer, cast long spells

the largest representation

the largest representation
of earth on earth lives
in our backyard, twelve
stories of twisting stainless
steel caught in time, floating
in a closed fountain of Peace

of polishing, and
understanding is
an orbiting target

when you start

when you start
dreaming that
you’ve won tickets
to Shakespeare
in the Park’s Into
the Woods
performance, beat
the system – that
daily, yet elusive,
virtual ticket
drawing –
everything else
suddenly
makes sense:
the Norseman
Xtreme Triathlon
black t-shirt in the
closet, the Pulitzer
on the mantel, the
Clydesdale prepped
and ready to go in the
backyard, and under
electrochromic glass,
the Key to the City

at times like these, we

at times like these, we
know that there are
ticker tape and streamers,
noisemakers and
hullabaloo amassing
somewhere
, ready
to be distributed,
tested – an exercise
in gravity
and the pull of
childhood heroes
