A Slice Of The Big Apple

Sliced apples

 

Sometimes the core of the issue

Can find growth in the yard

But the meat of the matter

Is what you must not discard …

 

Note: New York State is known for its apples. Also, New York City is called “The Big Apple” … with multitudes of people wanting to have a slice of that apple for themselves … So, though the photo may not be the ‘traditional’ way of portraying the ‘apple-appeal’ of the City, I’d like to think you’d agree that at the very least it shows it in a very digestible manner … 🙂

It went up.

It went down.

It went all the slow way

Around.

It’s no more

Nor the store

But it sure was

There

Before.

Where Broadway

Meets fifth

In triangular happenstance,

Stands a Beaux-Arts building

That Flat-Ironed

A vertical Palazzo

Into a steel framed

Renaissance.

There’s much more to New York City

Than the bustle of Times Square

But “The Crossroads of the World” is quite likely

Recognizable anywhere.

Even the New York Police Department

Is fittingly lit in neon lights

Its bold, large letters dwarfed by billboards

That chase the day into the night.
