Santa Loves Brooklyn

The Russian Futurist Vladimir Mayakovsky was moved when he first saw the Brooklyn Bridge in 1925, as he described in his poem:
 Brooklyn Bridge
...it stretches on cables of string
to the feet of the stars.

I stare
as an eskimo gapes at a train,

I seize on it

as a tick fastens to an ear.
Brooklyn Bridge--
yes....
That's quite a thing!
