Cesidio Tallini

(S. Floral Park, New York)

The King Of Manhattan


I saw Him, you see;
It was Jesus of Nazareth,
And American He shall be.
He was the child of poor,
And poor no more,
And the New York media
Went bonkers,
Like children in
A candy store.
Nobody knew who He was,
Who He was indeed,
Yet no one stood sadden,
At the sight of
The King of Manhattan!

Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
