Week 13 – Tuesday Evenings

Tuesday Evenings

The dusk of the days are longer.

The sun sets at seven instead of eight again.

I take myself to Alphabet City on Tuesdays and watch the garden on East 9th Street grow. 

Every day, I walk my life toward change. 


Week 12 – Winter


The night is cold, 

September arrived in wind and water. 


I shiver, the gusts gathering at my feet.

I remember what I should know,

Even better now.

The body can withstand the burn, if you can learn to breathe in fire.
