A Tale of Travel

NYC: A Haiku For Every Borough

By K. D. Effrain
Winds of Prospect blow╩
century old guardians
from earth to concrete

Citi sunshine calls
turf-wars with pirates and teams
of cannons til dark

Lee, Joe, D and Ralph
talk pies, beer and late night ice
while Islanders feed

171 sweats
in bulletproof cells saying
"You are not from here."

City heatwave lifts╩
Mott St. still sings discord and╩
Wash Hts. keeps dancing

*	*	*

New York cold nights hot
for endless days, while Mozart
plays to season's change
