"The Heart of the City"
by Bobbie Panek

Had a great time
returned at 1 a.m.
went on the harbor cruise
on the Hudson and East River
and on the uptown and downtown
Manhattan tour buses
our heads swimming with sounds
colors textures smells shapes frenzy
pastoral peace in Central Park
DakotaBuilding where John Lennon died
Leonardo Decaprio's Hudson River high rise
Harlem's Apollo Theater
Wall Street’s narrow minds
horses saris Soho and Hoboken
homeless with signs
bridal parties and pigeons
Ginka Biloba gifts from Chinese
churches with spires
buildings so high you can't see the tops
even when you stretch your neck back
streets and people
yellow taxis and people
street vendors and people
so much
history and mystery
