big city

From Lexington to 11th I walked
aching foot persisting constantly
without a destination, I walked.

Not realizing, I arrived
at the unmarked Terminal 5
I retraced my steps to 5th Ave
meeting countless faces
without a name.

Looking up at 30 Rock,
I sighed
A Dream, only in my dream.
Unrelenting, I walked on
trekking to 2nd Ave, lighthouse place
58th st, Starbucks.

Greeting people with my eyes,
some return my gaze,
others avert theirs

Such a big city,
such a lonely place.
