From My Window

after I turn off the TV - that electric eye 
  I gaze out 
       of my window at the FDR Drive 
A line of car - their headlights slicing into the darkness 
   the bridge dotted with 
gem - like small lights
     reaches out over the waters of the East Rive
  The traffic breaks and cars begin to whizz by 
Thousands of tired citizens are heading homeward
    The city seems like a man - made engine at times 
   Trucks pass over the bridge 
Through  the clouds 
      moonlight can be seen 
its rays reflected in 
   the waters of the East River
Urban joys and sorrows
    manifest themselves 
As I gaze from 
   my window 
on the Lower East Side of Gotham - New York City

    The form indeed looks like the view from across the river of the skyscrapers of NY if I tilt my head sideways...haha...Nice! I almost expected them to blink with citylights! Instead the imagery created by the poem is enough! Amazingly creative way you did it, Matthew.

    There is so much to be seen, outside the window. Your thoughts take me there, to the Lower East Side of Gotham. Well done. :) Hugs and Smiles, Brandy
