Ode to Taylor Street

monarch tattoo dances up her calf

lick Mario’s Italian Lemonade

cantaloupe her choice

twist your rubber neck down Taylor

for a marble doughnut glazed with 50 years

of Scafuri fingertips

pop down Loomis

the 157 keens your stop

lean forty-five degrees into Davanti’s Pizza della Terra

Taleggio tangling your tongue

leeks taunting taste buds

shrooms singing ballads

if I could marry you in Vegas

there’d be nothing left but crumbs
