Rochester, NY

“ROCHESTER, NY”

Far from the battlefields
of Hamlet and the
front page of La Monde
Far from Broadway and Aubergine
Far from Songs of Lear
and Bears in Space
A city sheds tears
fit for a queen

More cynical than a prostitute
singing in a Holiday Inn bathroom,
her falsetto stoops to conquer.
