"The Cold, Hard Gray of a City--
Or, The Kiss" (by Joe DiMino)

We build
From the inside
Out—our cold,
Hard gray
Of a city;
But all warmth
Not entirely
Misplaced nor

Aloft, a path
Of blue reminder
Between the corridor
Of skyscrapers
A footed-break

Amidst the snarl of traffic
From the center park
The scent of blossoms
Find, lift
Wafts us

While the multitasking lamppost
On a cloudy day serves as
Both sun and mistletoe….
