“Blue Note in New York City: A Poem”

Here is a new poem I wrote about New York. Hope you like it 🙂

“Blue Note in New York City”

The city of pleasure, the city of filthy rags
The city of all senses, the place of madness
Human creativity fills up its sides
boys & girls look up to its skies
lovers caress under its infinite lights, when the sun makes its bed in the West.

The city of pleasure, the city of divine regards
The Harlemites sing its joys verse by verse, when the moon refuses to give up its smile
The Caribbeans made the Yankee life their own, but street birds remind them of their uprootedness and new home.

The city of pleasure, the city of human links
Newcomers learn its tricks in comedy clubs
Men and women understand its slangs through
the melody of Blues and Jazz delights
The Lady of Liberty reminds the world about the paradox of American freedom & hospitality.
