                                  MANHATTAN AFTERNOON

                                        a homeless man
                                        plowing through the crowd
                                        his life in a cart

                                        six dogs on a walk
                                        a triple round of barking
                                        at a single leaf
                                        on Fifth Avenue
                                        the skinny is tweed

                                        upper East side
                                        a doorman and pigeons
                                        come with the rent

                                        ticket machine
                                        choking on coins
                                        spits nothing back

An excellent snapshot of city life, Adelaide...

Adelaide said...

Thanks, Frank. We don't get into the Big Apple often, but it's fun now and then.

Nice group, adelaide. Maybe next time you're in town, you and Pat and I can get together.

Adelaide said...

Thanks Gillena and Bill.

I would like to get together someday, Bill. Probably won't get to NY until the weather gets warmer.
