don’t mess w/NY

(poetry diary 32) thinking of this week’s events and this tweet–


so went looking for poems about crazy, awesome NY. Found this good round-up:

The 11 best poems about New York – Boo Paterson – Boo York City Magazine – March 8, 2016

here’s a nicely-presented excerpt of one by Grace Paley:


On Mother’s Day

Grace Paley
I went out walking
in the old neighborhood
Look! more trees on the block
forget-me-nots all around them
ivy   lantana shining
and geraniums in the window
