Aesthetic Realism Looks at New York City: Poetry



Rebecca Fein


The "Fox" Sign on Top of the Fox Building

A steel structure looking like a ladder
And also like cables on bridges,
Widens out into an intricate frame, containing the grayish white Fox sign.
The "F"; is a tremendous letter: the top goes off into the whole width of the frame,
And the middle is comradely, and touches the "o".
The "o" is an immobile thick circle which looks as though it might bounce away sometime,
And the "x" is strong, as high as the "o" and ends the steel frame.
