Live Forever Man Dancing Beneath The Lunar Eclipse

Rockaway, May 16th, 2022 I spy with my little eye: A pigeon on the railing. He spies me too. His eye is red. My eye is blue.  Too tired and apathetic to move. “This place is exhausting” I know, pigeon, I know. It’s starting to rain.   I wondered if it’s easier or harder to…

I Will Remember

  I Will Remember   I pulled your little mask, Over your nose and around your tiny ears. Praying the early reports were true, That children would be okay.   I hoped you would forget this, The anxiety ridden parts, The fear in the eyes of the Other shoppers in the frozen fruit aisle.  …

A Slow Moving Ambulance

Tuesday, January 11th, 2022, Rockaway, NY A slow moving ambulance can mean one of two things. The lights are flashing but the siren is off. Under the scaffolding at the end of our block.

The Greatest Hits Of All Time

June 30th, 2021 The Cheeseman on the radio announces the GREATEST HITS OF ALL TIME. Pronounces. Announces. Denounces. I find myself irritated by the presumption that what came before is better than the new. Or worse, that it is better than what is yet  to come.  In fairness, ‘He Ain’t Heavy (He’s My Brother)’, is…

Thank You – Set List and More

Photo by Mulography Rockaway, Monday June 7th, 2021 I take the ferry to from Rockaway to Pier 11/ Wall Street. It being a hot summer’s day, the ferry’s completely full.

Spring. Science. Hope.

Rockaway Park, Monday April 12, 2021 I have an appointment to get my eyes tested at 5pm. My glasses are taped together. It required an infraction of this magnitude for me to schedule this overdue test.  No corrective lenses would have helped me see this time coming. Still, here we are. I just learned that…
