Hidden Gems

You do not appreciate

the city I love most,

the city I identify with,

whose chaos matches the rhythm

of thoughts and emotions

flooding my mind,

it was in that moment I realized

when you said New York

was too high energy for you,

you do not have the patience

to search for the hidden gems,

the calm corner cafes hidden on a side street,

piano notes flooding the air

of Washington Square Park on a Sunday night,

serendipitous moments

connecting with a stranger

in the aisles of a small bookstore,

or finding an empty field

in the middle of Central Park,

so you would not be able

to handle me

an all my anxieties
