Week 35 – East River

East River

I think, this is a moment to light a candle instead of cursing the darkness. 

There is a woman putting on lipstick,

Tourists taking pictures,

A man on the phone venting about his marital problems.

I suppose I’m just one figure on this pier,

Eating pasta salad and wondering how much time I have left here in the wind.

It is sunny, and bright, and beautiful,

And I don’t think I need a candle.

The East River is home today.
