I [heart] NY

They found him on the corner
of 40th and Madison,
still clutching a suspicious-looking bottle,
and the women
averted their expensively contoured eyes
and would have frowned, if they could have.

He wore an army surplus jacket
and a T-shirt that read,
optimistically,
"I [heart] NY".



Summer 2006.
