Riverdale Morning

Up at dawn and

Out with my dog Samantha

in front of our thirty story

apartment building.


Birds chirping.

Don’t know which is which

Except the morning dove.


It’s soft coo beckons

Punctuated by a train whistle.

It’s just a commuter train.

And its the Bronx.


But close your eyes and

You’re upstate or out west.

The romance is there

And here.
