A new version of the old "Spirit of Manhattan", after basically a total re-haul.


Rhythmic pounding of billions of footsteps on the earth,
mingled sighs of disappointment-pleasure-heartbreak-hope,
sidewalks shared between millionaires and murderers,
pulses racing as others slow and still more stop,
taxis swerving and accelerating but always just missing,
diverse cultures transplanted onto one island,
worshiping in churches, mosques, temples, apartments,
life and death's eternal tug-of-war for the city's heart.
