Upper West Side, 1979

by the side of a very long road

I will not go quietly
forget about those orange nights

and marvel at the rising and setting
of such slight bones


On the Streets, 1974

at small tables
piled high with french meat pies

and little white
boats of gravy

the children would shout
Joyeux Noel

between sips of
grandmother’s wine



back then
the men would leave the city

and go off to fish, behind them
the spawn of troubled hands

the women
reaching for a big sky

found hope
in a bluster of trees
