Hopper's Cage

Inspired by 'Room in Brooklyn' by Edward Hopper, 1932

"Room in Brooklyn" by Edward Hopper

New York lady

head hung low and lazy

boxes of light cast

across her chalky colored cell


a city tomb at the peak of brooklyn

horizon-free view at her lap

If you’re lonely don’t look up

doze in barred rocking chair


passed out or passed on

a cut rose in a hollowed vase

yellowing like window shades


empty apocalypse windows

city of hollows

her dusty room of solitude
