Manhattan’s lonely crowd

crowd

                 Art class, John Lyons

A crowd

       a fullness
and an emptiness
       tightly pressed
together and yet
       so far apart
each one mysteriously
       transparent
open-mouthed
       perhaps expectant

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
