By H.E. Mantel-HaroHalola
Across the River, West 'tis that

at the cliffs & clefts of Victoria above
blackish waters slick as Legislation, of Verrazzano
& not-so-merried ferries, the promontory sits of
visage, resplendented of red deer & red bear &
white Eagles' scat from Lady Liberty!

Why, in the glare of where, opossum
& red squirrel, vied in-passioned
imposters of small virtue in deed 
sought, wrought of purloin
for some vertu & bijouterie for
- (The Chief Islander - so the Mythic goes!) -

But Hey!, it's up-on the BigScreen, now
playin' @ The Bijou, & in the dutri-plexes
& plexes of plexiglasse &
MegaPlexes of Tribeca, in the Tri-boros+2...

Avaunt! Above Verrazzano visage   
tramontane, There! The filth & flair
urbicide of City-fare, miasma which got us into
insouciant Dutch!
