"The Lobster House" on the St.
Johns River in Downtown-Downtown 1950s
Jacksonville, Florida, was where 
"The Creaturefrom the Black Lagoon" crawled 
up from the deep onto a riverfront
deck to howls of derision at Hollywood 
hucksters from an island girl and her 
Friday-night, dining-out friends.
In her just-married uber-sophistication 
she would order a MANHATTAN, 
unaware of the eminence of that dark 
and delicious libation: a cherry 
within for a small town girl with a yen 
for New York City, never dreaming
she would one day stand, island-girl-
awed, for the first time ever in the middle 
of Times Square: riveting heart of 
Manhattan as swirling headlights of
cars spelled consummation.
