Night in the City

night in the city poem by luis paredes

Dive bar hotdogs dredged from the deep
well whiskey karaoke shots, Papaya
slices, and Christopher St. cigars

Our appetite for panang curry is
legendary, but now lost to the swirling, snowy mist on the bottom
of that $13 bottle of sake.

This is the last call: bus, train, and
ferry cocktail to slip you back home.

God bless the MTA.
