2nd November Selection

The View

I jump from the burning tower

From the ninety-sixth floor

I hear seagulls and sirens

Traffic and silence

I see the panorama of

Sunlight on the harbor

I smell jet fuel

And autumn on the way

The crisp apple air

Kisses and caresses me

The taste of that breakfast donut

Eaten at my desk lingers

Relic of a former life

I think blessings on you

Mannahatta and

O how clear the sky

I spread my arms wide

Live and love and die
