Broadway Airs

The eternal buzz of city anglers brash, angry, hornets ever selling egos. Shrieking anxiety laced, analog, syllables, idiotically. Hoping against hope, urchins, desperations end, strumming ancient chords in vain efforts, praying evermore for ordained kindness's eye. Telltale ubiquitous blighter's energetically begging on. How on heaven's earth can anyone begrudge absolution, hand out shackles instead. The august city in full ultraviolet, never ever satiated, each mouth open. Raw as meat, uncooked, questionable, objectionable, waiting on the angler's hook obediently.

    I was scratching my head wondering what I missed... the amount of words per line, then? I think? Cause you dazzled me with the arrangement and the con/vow was perfect, yes? Thanks for checking mine :D We are having a blizzard today. Everything is closed, schools, libraries. Hubby is home and I was so exhausted that I crawled into bed, stuck a pillow on my head and slept for two hours (just woke up, 1:30 pm here) I feel like I could eat a 12 oz steak, honest... iron must be low... hugs, Dee xox

    If you are talking about New York, I fully agree. If I never go to the Big (rotten) Apple again it will be too soon. I will say, though, I was really turned on by the Museum of Modern Art. For some reason I have come in contact with the worst elements from that city instead of the best. Love, daver

    I must say though that this time in it felt much cleaner and safer ..more like Epoct Center than NY City BUT I was in the Theater district

    WHAM! Loved this. I took a close look for you, to make sure con/vow was kept. Can you do the same for me, Sis? I just posted mine. What a mindbending, sweat-inducing, rollercoaster ride David created. Not sure whether to pat him on the back or smack him on the bum! LOL... anyhoo, my po is called Katrina's Aftermath... I could sure use a 2nd set of eyes. No rush, hon... hug Smokey for me. I miss my cat :( xox Dee

    Vivid imagery, Debs! I would imagine you are much more familiar with the city scene than I am . I got to see N. Y.C in just one day and I remember racing down Broadway. Sure wish I could have seen a show.

    Love that last line, Deb, 'waiting on the angle.' It kind of sums up the whole thing. Excellent. hugs, Catie :)
