a polish man

in flight new york new york
big city of dreams
the moon
played hide and seek
and sang take me away
from
the cinema

vintage bags
dream little dream darling
quite moments home
at the erie basin
long exposure
eleven sixteenths
of botanical gardens
but rushing around seems like
what’s wrong with the world

empty wires
photo-thrice
door to another decade
culinary worries

i needed some way to see you
in the cold winter trees
i held so many in my suitcase heart
everybody asks how she’s doing
in the viewfinder
without warning
she gave up the ghost
of mexico
levitating
holiday dash
from the governor
a polish man
