And in a different outfit.


At night
when we leave
she puts on a different outfit
that pleases the night
she borrows from the stars
her shores wink to the bridges
with thousand little jewels
she flirts with the city
the waves caresses her feet
and the lovers silently watch
at their hidden bench
while she makes love
at night

I think it's late - or maybe I'm stupid...
The "lovers" are her and the city??????

Lovely metaphor. Since you live in NYC, may I add a haiku:

She preens for summer
When fall winds caress it's time
Winter naked white and cold
