Aesthetic Realism Looks at New York City: Poetry
New York Is Of, in More Than One Way
New York is of in four ways:
It is the New York of 1622, with the Indians around, and its shape then:
which it still has.
It is the New York of Peter Stuyvesant.
It is the New York of James J. Walker.
It is the New York of someone who came here from New Jersey this morning and left this afternoon.
