Big Apple

I have the night
written on my face,

the evening tattooed
to my body,

I have shadows
that cast their

spell on those
small mom and pops,

I have a gift
France gave me,

I have a nightlife
where the night

does not sleep
a wink

and my half buttoned
shirt makes me

celebrate summer
in the swindling hours

of dawn, when many legs
and many voices

go chasing
that big apple.
