I have walked these streets so often I couldforge the shadows of skyscrapers as they fallto rest between the sculptured air of midtown.Air-conditioned blood drips like rosariesfrom glassy facades to the cosmopolitan eyeThe fantasies of secretaries are washed to the streetsor trampled beneath thick heels along subway platformsEngineers in orange helmets point out the flawlessnessof buildings which do not yet exist. My handsWould drip with boredom or lust.   It was timefor evening in Time’s Square. There the dim-witted cloudsat once unbuttoned, revealing a nasty aperture beneathblue cables.

I have walked these streets so often I could
forge the shadows of skyscrapers as they fall
to rest between the sculptured air of midtown.

Air-conditioned blood drips like rosaries
from glassy facades to the cosmopolitan eye

The fantasies of secretaries are washed to the streets
or trampled beneath thick heels along subway platforms

Engineers in orange helmets point out the flawlessness
of buildings which do not yet exist. My hands

Would drip with boredom or lust.   It was time
for evening in Time’s Square. There the dim-witted clouds
at once unbuttoned, revealing a nasty aperture beneath
blue cables.
