THE SOUTH BRONX

(’80 or ’81)

/////////////////////////////////////////>>

-Follow the broken brick road
to smashed windows
in the tenement cemetery…

-Along every mugged block,
phantoms in Levi’s
sit on the stoops…

-Graffiti on graffiti,,,
not one plátano left
in the doomed bodega
on Simpson Avenue ///

-Nearby, in the rubble,
dog shit marks the tomb
of the unknown tenant…

-Emigrate to new rhythms,,,
the 7th Ave. Express
leaves behind the past…

-Roaches & rats,
the new landlords
by default.

Read all about it…”

apocalypse now,

cosmic choice:
to exist,
or not to exist,,,
eternal question.

-Humanity could’ve been
a contender.
