Lovelorn Poet in NYC: Snow Is Falling, New York City

snow is falling nycSnow is falling in Manhattan, I’ve got my coat, I’ve got my hat on
Falling deeper down in Brooklyn, someone’s cold that I just took in
Snowflakes causing quite a scene, Staten Island, The Bronx and Queens
Softly falling, oh so pretty, snow is falling, New York City

Falling down on Brooklyn Bridge, from Riverdale down to Bay Ridge
From the narrows, to the heights, falling on the city lights
See the city in a rush, transformed with a quiet hush
Come tomorrow it’s all gone, still it falls on and on

Snow along the sidewalk sweeps, across the city that never sleeps
Children sledding in the park, couples skating after dark
Sounds of laughter in the air, snow plows rushing here and there
Snowmen, snowballs, snowflakes fall, snow draped buildings big and small

Snow is falling in Manhattan, I’ve got my coat, I’ve got my hat on
Falling deeper down in Brooklyn, someone’s cold that I just took in
Snowflakes causing quite a scene, Staten Island, The Bronx and Queens
Softly falling, oh so pretty, snow is falling, New York City

New York City, snow is falling, oh so pretty, softly falling
The Bronx and Queens, Staten Island, snowflakes causing quite a scene
Someone’s cold that I just took in, falling deeper down in Brooklyn
I’ve got my hat on, I’ve got my coat, snow is falling in Manhattan

Snow draped buildings big and small, snowflakes fall, snowballs, snowmen
Snow plows rushing here and there, sounds of laughter in the air
Couples skating after dark, children sledding in the park
Across the city that never sleeps, snow along the sidewalk sweeps

Still it falls on and on, come tomorrow it’s all gone
Transformed with a quiet hush, see the city in a rush
Falling on the city lights, to the heights, from the narrows
From Riverdale down to Bay Ridge, falling down on Brooklyn Bridge

New York City, snow is falling, oh so pretty, softly falling
The Bronx and Queens, Staten Island, snowflakes causing quite a scene
Someone’s cold that I just took in, falling deeper down in Brooklyn
I’ve got my hat on, I’ve got my coat, snow is falling in Manhattan

 

Lovelorn Poet in Baltimore, MD: Hitch

Pick Up by Roland Brunner

I’ll hitch a ride with you, baby
Anywhere you’re goin’
I’ll keep this black tank on
Yeah the jeans and the boots
Hell I’d even wear a cowboy hat
for ya
So let’s hit it,
the road.
Dogs & dirt bikes in the back
Sippin’ on that sick-ass whiskey
Passin’ that piece and I’m kickin’
those beats

I’m so on it

We have a situation here by Alejandro Mallea

We have a situation here by Alejandro Mallea

The most satisfying material to clean is porcelain. One is able to feel the imperfections erase from the surface as the fingers dig into the dried dung. Rubber gloves make the task bearable; the powder inside the gloves makes them humane. If you are wearing all black then you must wash your hands the moment you remove the gloves. The white powder loves black. Cleaning bathrooms is a janitor’s job. I wait tables. I clean bathrooms. Janitors require $7.25 an hour to clean. It takes me, a waiter, 20 minutes to clean the men’s and women’s restrooms. I am paid 71 cents to clean the bathrooms. Waiters require $2.13 an hour to clean. We make tips. You tip us so we clean your shit. I sure as hell would not clean shit for $2.13 an hour. I clean shit for tips. It would be nice if people left tips in the bathroom. It might not be sanitary but it would make me feel better as I mop up your piss. The tips left on the tables are too far removed. Just throw a silver dollar in the urinal. No one will pick it out. I will pick it out. I have gloves. I make $2.13 an hour. With your silver dollar I make $3.13 an hour. I’ll kiss your ass and clean your shit. Otherwise I make $2.13 an hour. I have considered asking for a raise to $2.44 an hour. That is too much. Perhaps a 10% raise would be more reasonable: $2.34. No, I make tips. I am curious which janitor sits at home without a job because I clean their toilets. I would love to hire them for the job; it is their job after all. But I do not make enough waiting tables. I must clean toilets too. What if we hired a janitor and fired me, the waiter? The janitor could clean most of the time. Doing what janitors do best. The janitor could leave the bathroom occasionally, removing their thin, rubber gloves. Powder sticking to their hands as they walk by your empty Diet Coke glass, they could return to your table with a pitcher of soda. They could fill your soda. They could clear your plates and ask if you would like dessert. They could receive the tip and make a janitors pay simultaneously. They could be rich!

Lovelorn Poet in Toronto, ON: It’s A Fine Romance

It's a Fine Romance

It’s a Fine Romance

It’s a fine romance
A Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers
Romance
It’s a Frank Sinatra romance
The way you look tonite
“In other word’s”
It’s a sinister romance
You look dapper
You look smashing
You look precariously
Well-balanced, my sweet Love.
As the Ace of Spades blasts
Through Lemme’s Motorhead Mouth
Romance is more than just a game
For two lover’s
Lost in paradise
Romance is the shuffle
While standing in cue
At the Capital
Plastered inside
With shots of hidden shyness
Romance is the journey to Hell
Holding hands together.
As the King of rock n roll
Elvis Presley sings
Love me tender.
It’s a fine romance
As the Cure blares
“I will always love you”
A double shot of romance
“Tainted Love”
And then it dawns upon you
As you try not to be seen staring
At the two incredibly hott
Brunette’s chatting up their storm
She smiles with gracious charm
Her friend winks and a giggle follows
Time to escape
The James Dean way
A firey crash
Lite up the blue skies
Soul music reigns supreme
The most beautiful voice
The queen Aretha Franklin
And that’s what I need right about now.
“A natural woman”
A natural romance
A natural woman’s romance
As the opening of my heart drowns
From the flames of desire
Oh I’m lost again……
The endless dreams of all these
Parkdale girls…..
Time to get that mermaid tattoo on my hip coloured in….
End it with sum Stevie Wonder’s
Rendition
I can’t take my eye’s off of you
I love you baby
Let me love you…………..
