New York City.

the starlings and the pigeons in city hall park
the traffic coming off the brooklyn bridge
then into the subway and under the river
a transfer later and up into the brooklyn air
walking for no purpose on 8th avenue staring
at passing fences then it’s william gaynor’s house
but somebody’s removed the stoop
nothing is just right
nothing is perfect
just like love
