odd notions
an ocean of sweat
hurricane manhattan
floodtide up hudson putnam
lakeside the cool remedies are sought

glasses tinkle conversation flows ebbs
bananas fosters friends shots
gather swimming night
dawnward bound
together

break in
the hot weather
people back on the streets
the sound of water is city
music

#318. heat wave

July 9, 2010

in
the subway
with
all the odors
of
decaying life
the
heat blasts
by
the people
on
platforms
are
wilting
in
the stench
then
get aboard
the
long train
to
hot stations
then
up stairs
and
down passages
and
up stairs
then
out into the rain refreshed breeze

Th woman
as paint
the pure lines of body
breast hip navel.
sharp
the pure lines of face
cheek nose eye.

all colors change sparkles
all colors real
color.

***

i sing angel with iggy pop
yr loveslaps
joy
collapsedance.

i dance naked.

later we fuck beautiful.
sweat is the endless sea.

***

Th woman
as man
i’m not pushing
or pulling yr rib.

i kiss yr hand.

***

The closed world of us in a car
at night.
Dreams.
dense and sweet against
the bitter chocolate world.
Touch the cold windshield
turned to ice.

Wake to morning thunder.
Pounds
lazy.

***
Th woman
over now.

#170. christina’s line

February 11, 2010

brooklyn is dripping
from bridge to bridge
to bridge.
steam rising across the river
has to be bburgh.
the ice and slush makes the borough shine.
water flows from the heights
and makes of the car tires’ song
a different winter tune.

the many facets of a nor’easter’s beauty evolve towards the seasons
to come.

#26. Summer Day

September 22, 2009

Summer Day

and enjoyment spreads clear
as the day is bright and blue.

summer day
and sidewalk waves rise shivering
as chairs hold oblivious drinkers.

summer day
and green park cools kids dogs
as restless homeless rest wary.

summer day
and car metal hot smells burns rubber
as they pass the jazz band tightly playing.

summer day
and the garden fountain to be sings sprays Erato
as you brush against me languid perfect.
