  • A Poem for NYC on our 10th Anniversary:

On the 15th day
Of an August haze 
In the year of 20 aught 5
A smaller version of me
Arrived in big NYC
So certain she'd survive

Ignorance was blissful
And dreams were wistful
No nuance yet neutralized 
I grabbed a fistful
Of thoughts still wishful
And dared not scrutinize 
Soon, reality 
Took hold of me 
Sought out to shake my stride 
Through that ragged ride 
I realized 
The paradox of pride

But in the dirge
New hope emerged 
A clarity of sort
Light and darkness could converge 
As inspiration to import 
The synergy is slippery 
Some days can find you thrown 
The energy 
Of 8 million beings
Getting tangled in your own

One learns to love that relentless link
The seed together sown 
A bond that's blossomed in a blink 
See how much we've grown? 
Citizenship 
Is an ongoing trip
Rediscovering our own
Unraveling 
Regathering 
And harvesting a home 
Time ticks fast 
But lessons last 
We are the parts of our sum
To a decade past 
I raise a glass
And toast what will become
