One Morning In Jersey City

By Anthony Buccino

Verse written along the Hudson River in Jersey City, N.J.

You can hear a lot by looking around. Sometimes, standing along the Hudson River shoreline, you can dream of the freedom in the sailing beauty slipping through the waves, or question the signals proffered by a hungry seagull, or ponder why the pigeons follow you.

Or you could sit ever so still and listen to the clatter of heels on the tile as the cigarette mafia heads outside for fresh air, while you slip in among them and consider the steel and glass surroundings.

Town that gives poetic license

One Morning in Jersey City by Anthony Buccino


First you want a body of water

To look at out your window

Then you want

A sailboat to float by

On the shimmering sea

Then you want a body

Steering the sailboat towards you

It should be someone sexy, you say.

And the sailboat, slick and sleek

As it approaches your shore

Then you want no window between

You and the sea, a summer breeze to blow

Wisps of sea spray to keep bugs away.

Next you want more vacation time

To sail away on the sea, and that, my dear,

Is why you can see no sailboat, or foamy water

You see nothing beyond the walls of your cubicle

-Sailboat
