New York

New York, you giant slithering medusa you!
You pompous glutton!
You vicious shameless relentless temptress!

From afar, the glint of brilliance you cast through my shades penetrates deep,
You shimmering splendorous wretch.
You gorgeous Narcissus of a thatchwork of steel.

Before I'm even aware of my curiosity,
You effervescent joyride you,
Your suck has got me firm, tendril wrapped 'round all-too-willing wrist.

Oh, how quickly your wings wrap, shading me in your opulence,
But binding me, irreversibly,
To your shiny-toothed grin.

You can't have me New York, not just yet.
