Aesthetic Realism Looks at New York City: Poetry



Robert Clairmont


The Tan Suit Person and Importance in New York

The chances are
You are making
Just about as important an impression
In the life
Of the person in the tan suit
Who is looking at you
From the top of an omnibus
In New York, New York,
As the tan suit person
Is making in yours.

From Quintillions (NY: American Sunbeam Publisher, 2005)
