i left…

said she looked for me everywhere…over on 7th and 32nd…down in the Bowery…Alphabet City…parts of the Village…said she looked everywhere…i was nowhere to be found…took-off…left the scene…boarded a bus at The Port Authority and watched Gotham go-by in a darkened window as night fell and traffic crawled…

said she looked for me everywhere…over in the Bronx…’round Hunts Point…Domenican diners where rice con pollo was served for $5 a plate…in soul food shacks with a bottle of hot sauce on every table…she looked there…she looked there…

said she looked for me everywhere…asking halal vendors if they had seen me…Jews on the Upper Westside…had they seen the likes of me…old men said no while women in long dresses shook their heads…said she asked…she asked…

said she looked everywhere for me…i had left this city of the lonely…bums who walk the sidewalks…crazies muttering to themselves…boys with buns and $1,000 suits setting the pace…i left it…i left it…

and…i left her…
