    i walk
    like time scrapes through my nap-*** hair--
    un-braided and slighty presentable--
    people be pushin and shoving--
    can't sit on the seat by the door--
    the "onion people"* be there
    and ******--
    yes ****** (both black and WHITE)
    be ready to snatch whatever lies 'round--
    yo neck yo wrist yo fingaz--


    45 minute ride--
    Rochdale Apartments (QUEENS)
    to Manhattan

    walking again--
    stride tempermented--
    as if my feet are angry--
    elevated by two hundred stairs--
    and one elevator ascending 12 floors--

    walking again--
    this time slower--
    as if my stare controls time--
    right turn--
    sixteen steps--
    slouched in chair...
    another
    day.


    espee--
