Main Street NYC
colored pencil and embroidery on paper
My Main Street (crossing Broadway)
They’re digging up Broadway
at night the clatter of wheels over metal plates
provides a rhythmic accompaniment to music from car stereos
double-parked outside the 24-hour deli on the corner

Sunday mornings the finery of congregants mingles with
the dog walkers
and the finery of the refugees from Saturday night

Headlines announcing Politics As Usual
step into the street dance
Daily News of space and Times

“They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway…”
blinking red hand
“They say there’s always magic in the air…”
neon green walk
