Same Me Different Town

El Barrio Mural

El Barrio Mural


Seeing a New York
that many I know
do know know
the places I go
they do not go
they are not
Yankee Stadium
not a Broadway show
not a huge store
that starts F.A.O.
from a piraguero
I buy a tamarindo
compro mas musica
en El Barrio
toco un clase
al Museo
and catch up with friends
at El Paso.

One friend is a singer
another an
advocate
they reach out to many
making them glad
that it
can be a happy day if
they do the best they can
with it
being tougher times
for any woman or man
in it.

My vision of Nueva York
is open and wide
as I venture to yet
another non-commercial
side down to Union Square
where
an artist shows
her pride buy selling
and displaying all her
talented stride.
New York has
so many colors and faces
so many sounds and
sights all over
the places
it is more than
over paid pinstripes
running their bases
it is a heart full of
life with different
genres and paces.
