New York, New York,

Christmas in New York is full of masculinity,

Manhattan Street is sloppy and hurried;

Bonfire, bonfire,

The hotel’s bonfire casts floating shadows.

Rose petals filled my heart early;

53rd Street, 53rd Street,

Then stroll the traffic passing by 53th Street,

The branches of Christmas are strewn across the building;

Ashes, ashes,

When the music of ash echoed again,

The solidified building stood beside me.

A stroll and reverie at the Baccart Hotel on 12/23/2016 in New York. Christmas adaptation 2019.
