Day 8 Riff

Badass Baedeker

mina loy got the devil in her
silver powder
horned plenty

by french doors

finely robed nights
lay waiting to ride
under the hudson

carnival boulevards
in dotted streetlights 
and jasmined mists

electric weather and white lightning
tidal pools and "one night only"
slash the city's shroud

from the uptown outer reaches
the debutantes and astronomers
name radio towers

and finally carriage horses stomp 
dull tunes in the flowery faces
of downtown's many, many moons
