55

“There is a place in the city, my love, where green trees and red bricks meet.

There is a street in Manhattan, my dear, where grand churches and hotels fight.

There is a lane downtown, my love, of concrete paved till Hudson, blue.

The street 55, carrying over its lobbies and jewelleries the sheer luxury of your

 

scented

 

trail.

I can still hear your high heels on the pavement

and picture the diamonds 'round your neck

and 'twixt your fingers one of your thin cigarettes.

 

I can still follow you through crowds and silence, through East and West, through up

 

and

downtown

and catch a glimpse of your scent in the linen of my sheets.

For there is a street in Manhattan which I know and which you knew and where we knew each other, You and I.

 
 

Clouds dance and pile up : a silky ballet of sultry-white flowers whence jasmine accents spring like rays of golden light.

A choreography drawn on silver dust, 55 is the metaphor of a love quest; the sheer expression of a spiral, inspired, vertical tension.”
