More About the Author

I Am Yellow-Gold Sun

I am yellow-gold sun
sliding down the horizon
over Riverside Park;
a wrought iron cage
interrupted by stairs
cascading down the blonde brick
of a pre-WWI apartment building,
the deep round echo of harbor horns
rolling on the silver and gold laced Hudson
towards Ulysses's alma mater, West Point.

I am the swish of rollers
and the scratch of a broom stick on the pavement
during a street shuffle board game;
the winning weighted metal sound
sliding across the sidewalk
at the end-of-summer sculley tournament,
and the whaling on every corner
not understanding
"Oh my God, the President's been shot!"

I am the aroma of arroz con gandules;
a cobalt blue, mosaic-framed doorway
wafting fresh pizza,
and a "dirty dog"
in a stainless steel bath
under a yellow umbrella.

I am roasted chestnuts
veiling the entrance into
Macy's on Herald Square;
custard ice cream
that lures children from their mother's grip
in the subway,
and the ketchup on a knish.

I am pixie, heggies, and butterfingers;
groovy, cool, beatnik, and hippie.
I am Miss Mary Mack
and Georgie Porgie puddin' and pie;
hood, hip, square, wipe out, and what's up.
I am mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa,
far out, funky, fuzz, and gimme some skin.

I am a life lesson learned
when caught by a Woolworth's security guard
with Roundy Rachel,
while pocketing a plastic toy watch;
the swoosh drawings of Motown singers on paper
that spilled from Myra's left hand;
and the finger-tapped kiss onto Sheryl's mezuzah
before we snuck into the synagogue.

I am lonely, rugged blue jeans
with turned-up cuffs
carefully dodging cracks (not to break my mother's back)
always moving towards
the yellow-gold sun
sliding down the horizon
over Riverside Park
searching for a smile to call friend.
