The Mag - 207

Rooms to let fifty cents...la, la...la..two hours of pushing brooms buys an eight by twelve four bit room.  STOP! ..... no time for browsing - meet me at Russ & Daughters instead.


THE MAG




Universal Studios Lot, Instagram by Sessepien

Thank you Tess, for always knowing how to get the thoughts moving,
even within a hectic weekend.



MUN-DEY, TWOS-DEY, WEHN-S-DEY, THERRS-DEY, FRY-DEY, SATER-DEY!

Some folks complain about concrete cliffs
and being trapped in such an ugly, crime ridden city.
Not I.
Call it a shattering reflection 
where one becomes deliciously vivacious
with bustling trains linking five boroughs
brawling through heaping helpings of cream cheese
smeared over a bagel
and how a hot garbage breeze
reminds you why July
lacks perfection-
and 
Magnolia's confections
always please.
Or meeting strangers drowned in hair gel 
that ride in 
from outer limits
are such a tease
 insistent to reach "The city"
just to catch-up 
with pals on Houston Street.
I for one am
Always
anticipating
spirits rising
 and heartfelt cheer
over a beer
and a plain slice
and 
no visit is complete
without
devouring 
a Meshugge



Yummy for the tummy
Meshugge!


on Houston Street.

and
the silky touch of 
a deli cat
strumming by.
Just another glory to be had
so spontaneously amusing
and
always
binding my soul
to New York City.

Never shall we worry about those folks 


living in Black and White.





Please do visit other Magpie tales why not.

I still love B & W photos. However, after looking at the photo at the top of your blog, how could I possible long for NYC?

Ah the Hustle, bustle and vivacity; nothing quite like it even if it’s only for me in small doses. Nicely conjured up images and .. . I learned a new word!

Love how you began this post! I also thought of "King of the Road" when I saw the image. I enjoyed your poetry.

Ginny Brannan said...

Cool! I love this view of 'the city,' so positive and exciting! Have eaten at Carnegie's in NYC, and many corner delis on L.I. where I lived for 5 years, never tried one of those sandwiches! People who've never eaten at a real New York deli don't have a clue what they're missing!

City for change - yes for rest, but not for living there forever..
