Poetic States: New York

Mohawks on Broadway

Remember your big fight scene
in Last of the Mohicans,
where Hawkeye and Chingachgook
fight the Huron enemy atop palisades
actually filmed in North Carolina.

The beauty of Saratoga needed
a stand-in to satisfy Hollywood.

Regardless, you have everything,
besides natural beauty: wealth,
power, history, art and the Yankees,
Erie Canal, finger lakes and Hudson;
and you have The City.

And The City has enemies.
