Manhattan Bridge

Posted in cityscapes by Denise Rafkind on January 4, 2015

I remember when I saw you under the bridge. You had already talked yourself down. But you were still not convinced. I sat with you. You cried. I bought you dinner. You cried. I walked you home. You cried at the door. Then you hugged me. “I didn’t think anyone was left out there like […]

Taxi!

Posted in cityscapes by Denise Rafkind on January 4, 2015

Yellow blurrrrrrr down Broadway. I catch you now and then in the corner of my eye. It somehow moves me. It’s like…some turn-on that’s not literal. It’s an arousal, but for the city. Then I realize. Even though you splash water on me on rainy days when you turn corners. Even though you sometimes stop […]

La Puerta Del Sol

Posted in cityscapes by Denise Rafkind on January 4, 2015

The meeting. It had been 7 long years since my eyes rested inside yours. I replayed over and over, how perfectly you fit in my arms when we hugged. How, when we spoke, our empathetic tones always matched. How you always made me feel. How I always felt around you. I wanted to write this […]

Grand Central Station

Posted in cityscapes by Denise Rafkind on January 4, 2015

You are the monarch of orderly madness. Oh, Grand you are! Symbolic in every way. A sibling to a city. Central to a metropolis. Receiving the servants of society’s program. Loyal they enter you. Lovers, workers, toilers and dreamers. Filing and moving like uncoiling serpents. You engulf them, And their meticulous patterns. You swallow, A […]

Downtown New York City

Release me from your clutches. Please. The first time we kissed I lost my breath. The second time…still hasn’t ended. I’m stuck to you. I like the coolness of your metal against my skin. Your boulevards, streets and avenues… I’ve made love on them once or twice, When I lost track of the moon in […]

Rusted Subway Car

There are still people on this car. You just can’t see them. Not with these eyes. Not in this dimension, but they are there. I promise. Can you imagine? Can you? Imagine that man off to the right, With the starched white shirt and tie. Hanging on…to the side of the wall. Looking through the […]

Empire State Building

Posted in cityscapes by Denise Rafkind on January 3, 2015

A New York icon, the Empire State Building reaches 103 stories into the sky. This skyscraper one of my favorite landmarks in NYC. The top of the building has been lit up in many different colors for all kinds of reasons, including celebrations, remembrances and honors…in this photograph the building displays the traditional American red, white and blue.
