NEW YORK (Thane & Prose, 2022) is the third volume in a five-book series that traces the poet’s progress through places of epic inspiration. NEW YORK is about the streets, people, monuments, parks and bedrooms of the city that never sleeps. It sticks existence in your face and says give me all your wild imaginations, and they will come true. The next book in the series is PARIS (2025), followed by the finale ROME (2028).

City of smoke and steam
I do not know what you mean,
the fog is thick and white,
streets are full of life.
Sing the spring chorus of muses,
tower elite, flowering avenues
support a pageantry of small feet,
wings fly, immerse windows
in light and let fervent rain
water budding parks, fingers of grass
massage nude backs and bed the lovers—
ode to you unending patient city,
celebrate angels, outsoar catacomb
subway terminals to mount steep stairwell
with satanic energy, a crowded
street and sidewalk, elevated oneness,
high the sun of summer skies above us.
Never the Same
My best is yet to come
what was today
every little light
Were it anywhere else
it would not be
combines to form
of door and train.
float over a new river
because the water
there is never
the same as yesterday.
