Morning On “The Bleek” (Bleecker St. ~ Utica)

Filed under: Uncategorized — migueltio @ 12:53 pm

He gets off the bus to wait

for his accounting class

to begin, in order to forge

his future dream, owning his own



Down the block she walks

having had a long night with

a crying child she just dropped

off, at her mother’s before her shift

at Grimaldi’s.


He pulls his van into a spot

as the kitchen staff comes out

to receive the order of lo mein and

ginger root he drove in especially for

today’s lunch.


She looks out her high window

to see that the bakery is open so

she can now purchase three dozen

cannolis to take to her nephew’s

christening tomorrow.


He unlocks the door and

turns on the bachata while

making ready all his clippers

hoping soon he will give his day’s

first hair cut.


Full parking on both sides

a narrow chasm in between where

you can run out of room

very fast, as you drive down

Bleecker St.
