Society she misses,
The emerald eyes,
That seem like sapphire spies,
The vintage blueberry,
From her beach canary,
She misses the north,
For the south was a chaotic birth,
Yours truly from the sky,
Greetings my graceful,
The sorrow of isolation won’t take me away. I have a lot of friends here. :)
Crimson red lips,
Navy blazers and the north eclipse,
Blondes and brunettes bronzed,
Guys go beyond and correspond,
Lady Liberty in my palm,
Justice in the intercom,
Diplomacy, my new username,
New York City in the cunning trade game,
We’ll be there to become,
The sierra of the seas and the snow drum
I’m going to freeze in NYC during the MUN conference (just like when I visited London in the winter). FYI, this year it will be held in the New York Hilton Midtown hotel. I’m beyond ecstatic...the conference will become a milestone in my not-so-great social life and public speaking. Monthly MUN meeting today...can’t wait!
I may never
can we do
Take me to New York
Take me to the tallest tower
Even just to show me how far I’d fall
But swimming in the ocean
Seeing how your eyes reflect the sun
Forever didn’t seem all that far off
Back then when I knew you
When it was clear what your intention was
Back when everything made sense because
We were in love
the train rumbles against my heart
the men at the deli call me honey.
good music, trench coats, a breeze,
blocks of concrete piled up, a
snapshot of her on the wall, records,
this new york is the fat on the skeleton
of a city that has breathed in my hair
since i was born and before. the ghost
of towers, you might ask me where
it all went. i say it stayed inside us.
i have a cutout of bruce lee, **** rug,
a scrap from a magazine, a cadillac,
my soul yearns for a simpler time.
the children next door play in the rain.
it's not too hard to retain the memory
of something, even if you might not
have known it. ask me who i want to be.
i will tell you that i don't know, i may
never figure it out, but for now
my lover is my city that never sleeps.
Abondened on the busy streets of New York.
So many people, yet feeling so alone.
Everyone in such a hurry,
each to someplace different.
They promised me a world where dreams become reality.
With my luggage in one hand and dollar bills in the other,
I gather all the courage and take a step into this new world.
The smell of hot dog and gas
Invades my nose like tiny trespassers
Scavenging pigeons peck and flap
Their wings at the sight of feet
Visitors with a pastry and map
At hand take in the chaos
Musicals like Follies and Cats
Perform on dazzling Broadway
There's no rest, no quick-nap
In this quick-paced place
You either sleep or move fast
In the biggest city in the world,
Known as New York, New York.
In honor of my favorite place in the world!
I like December New-York by all soul’s fibres
Inspiration is hovering in the air
When holiday admiration is Christmas
And joy’s agitation is pleasant there.
The winter day’s so great in the Central Park
And almost for attire is its paradise.
They are playing country music as if Roy Clark
Were here with talented artists’ dozens.
Wonderful is always view in Fifth Avenue,
As is Holliwoods films were on farther.
And Daniel’s has so tasteful menu,
Thus the Big Apple is one big wonder.
Я так люблю декабрьский Нью-Йорк,
Ведь в воздухе витает вдохновенье,
Рождественский предпраздничный восторг
И радости приятное волненье!
Зимой прекрасен очень Central Park –
Природный рай почти для урбанистов!
Играют кантри будто сам Рой Кларк
Здесь дюжины талантливых артистов!
Чудесен вид на Пятой Авеню –
Как будто ты в кино из Голливуда!
Тут в Daniel’e вкусное меню –
Большое Яблоко – одно большое чудо!

spent so many nights awake
exploring the city at night it’s not the same as during the day
Empire State Building is brighter
and women spread their legs open wider
perhaps, that’s the whole point of it
the wider you spread, the wilder it gets
city love is acrobatic
do the slips but don’t be dramatic
