New Poetry by B.Z. Niditch


So long as the rain
in late August steps
between watery walks
midday in Manhattan
with grey clouds overhead,
and clubbing tourists
sparkle with champagne,
your own mouth rests
near green bottles
of the lemony room
hearing jazz piano
for four hands,
your red lazy eye
staring at the overcast
resembling the argentite
of a showery sky,
Auden from across
an ocean of time
fills up twice
alive as animated angels
whom he enlightens
until daylight disappears.
