40 43 74 00
fourth of july
mid afternoon
sun splattered and thirsting
in a 24 karat dive bar
off of bedford ave
the jagged haired starved artists
buying up their mixed drinks
and the gawking young intellectuals
with gossip to spare
(and presentations everywhere)

40 43 74 00
it's often said that new york city
is the center of the world
it is a series of islands
doused taught
and knit grey
where the self can seep
willing and high
into the teeming mass
with gossip to spare
and presentations everywhere

everyone is someone here
that someone vice versa
economy is language here
and fluency is king

40 43 74 00
it is often said that new york city
is the center of the world

a worm in the apple
a sewer to the sea
