Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

Great contrast of hot and cold. And very atmospheric, not the sort of scene I'd encounter here, therefore all the more pleasing to read.

Thanks, Devika, John, and Vaughn. Magyar, I posted a draft of this in a workshop setting; don't know if you could have seen it there. It's also always possible that someone else has worked with a similar image. Thanks for the information about your site. Thanks, jem: it's a familiar New York street scene. And thanks to gillena and Gautami.
