Alphabet City Blues…. Sailing

We burnt the waters of the city with

M80s exploding on the East River,

soda can grenades popping off

under the Alphabet City Sky…..

Brownishboys  on

New York streets,

Caribbean and Filipino teens

adrift in a city

stained with graffiti tags and crack vials.

sailed on boards,

up to York Avenue

down to South Street

taking breaks in-between in

Washington Square Park

as clouds of weed were darkening the sky,

and cigarettes were dangling from our lips

and butterfly knifes fluttering in our hands….
