My great borough, Manhattan,

city of profitable bargaining, city of economy,

city of the flow of money, city of business,

city of hard work and pay earned, city of opportunity,

city of converging lives, city of many disconnected bubbles,

city of soap-bubbles, city that gleams rainbow,

city that shines in the greatest compromise between commerce and art,

city greater than everything put together, the hub of the human universe,

city of neighborhoods, demanding, curious, incurious,

maintained, maintained, scrubbed and rebuilt, scarred by ubiquitous entropy,

I am yours, city, I am yours, I will always be yours.

The cold breath of the wall at my back,
and you're the only one I ever wanted as a doorstop,
hiding the chinks in my coat.
