Metamorphosis

Mid-day on a corner of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. My city, but it’s suddenly a new city, a dream city. Sky too blue; avenue too wide, curving into infinity. South-facing buildings painted glaring white by the sun; east-facing ones in deep shadow—contrast worthy of Hopper. The scene envelops me and I become the observer, the painter, the painted.

Autumn sun –
a sudden burst
of rose-gold cloud
