Manhattan’s lonely crowd


                 Art class, John Lyons

A crowd

       a fullness
and an emptiness
       tightly pressed
together and yet
       so far apart
each one mysteriously

perhaps each hoping
       to trade in
their inner 5th Avenue
       their fragility
their soulful aloneness
       for some firm
intimate connection
       one with another

John Lyons
