WEST 58TH STREET, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Tonight / from this high window
Last Line: Snarl and prey and devour.
Subject(s): New York City; Taxis; Manhattan; New York, New York; The Big Apple

From this high window,
Above that softened roof-line !
A dry blue star quivers and throbs and quivers.
Lower, mistier,
A string of three swing in a cool grey curve.
Behind that squatty water-tank ( "
A slicm of moon suspends, of silver and steel. ) !
Farther west *
Electric signs are glittering rhinestone plaoets.
Endless rows and rows of yellow oblongs
Hide identical kitkhenetted souls. ( !
Down the street
A pack of wolfish taxis,!eyes of fire, ! &
Snarl and prey and devour.
