brooklyn

the flight gives you a good idea about
what other people smell like and
sound like when they snore

this is where people go to fall all over each other
and arrange trash bags in a linear fashion
along narrow sidewalks

a rusting tower is telling me it will miss me
in sloppy white graffiti lettering
and i believe it

at the overpriced lie of a japanese restaurant,
you find excuses for only ever making art
about beautiful things that break you

at the manhattan bound ferry dock,
the looming bow parts shoreline trash
for passengers to make metaphors about
