Love, Actually.

You can identify a New Yorker by observing
how tightly they clench their bags
how effortlessly they navigate the subway system
and how quickly they cross the street. 
It's an abrasive culture - one that is wonderfully efficient and full of energy
but often devoid of kinship, solidarity,
love.
So we find love in secluded places
hidden within the heart of the city
in a nightly stillness that rings of evensong
or outside it, in suburban homes
where people congregate to celebrate life.

  4. It's so true. It drives me crazy though when people think we're cold-hearted or loveless people at all though. We do have those moment, just to ourselves.
