To Red Hook from Yellow Hook

To Red Hook from Yellow Hook
the wind is very strong, please hold the handle
statue of a doughboy
seathemed jetsam-covered shanty
labyrinthine sparkly store
brick warehouses with black shutters
cranes and ikeas
shorebirds and tugboats
pearlescence of diamonds on the oily harbor waters
twenty-dollar entrees
may you forever sparkle and forever shine
may you dance dance
a black leotard trance
the double canals
Gowanus below Gowanus above
Gowan ‘n’ peddle yuh pehpahs
