Relaxing in Central Park
Our park is a place of unnatural wonders
A shirtless man wearing low-riding jeans
Two women buxom and bold, stalking,
While an older gentleman homeless, I suspect
Stakes a claim on a rickety old bench.
Teenagers are playing flag football nearby
A tiny tot looks around lost and starts to whimper
When his mama spots him and yells angrily.
Numerous squirrels are chasing their tails.
Four teenage girls are loudly kvetching, while
A young man wearing a designer mask
Seems properly afraid of catching the virus
And I observe all, while trying to write a poem.
