2 Flew To New York City

We flew like birds into NYC
By way of Chicago
With not a worry in the world
Other than our next
Meal, like
Those pigeons we saw
When we
Landed in Manhattan, then

Our wings across Time’s Square to Central Park
West & Columbus Circle, all the way down
To Ground Zero, and Chinatown —
Right below Little Italy
& Soho directly west
Of Manhattan’s
Lower East
Side, not
Too far
From the Brooklyn Bridge as it
Looms over East River – to wind up in Strand
With its 18 miles of books
Right in the heart and soul of Union Square.

Needless to say
Old New York
Its imprint
On the bottoms
Of our soles. & now
By way of the ATL
Like new bohemians
On a wanderlust
For stardust, we must

Find our way back home.
