Never Been To Manhatten
larrylark

Rats in sewers, vultures squawk,
 1
luring the unwary down sidewalks.
 2
It’s said the place is always on the go.
 3
The whole of every day. Never slows.

Where I stay sleeps,
 5
wrapped in empty hours.
 6
Mice in the drainpipes, sparrows on the pavement.
 7
Night cap, half ten, lights doused,
 8
Someone once told me when roused,
 9
that it once appeared on a map.

I like "lights doused."  Mini hyperbole.
