Where are you headed?

Q4 bus
From the Getty Collection

I am from Sax and Dora

patches of dust on a Quitman GA road

roosters crowing in the morning

and honeybee snuff on Eliza’s tongue

I am from the capital to Vietnam to NYC

streets considered the concrete jungle

From English Tudor homes and block parties

From 6 AM Sunday morning service

and fried fish Friday’s

From Linden Blvd and Merrick

I am from a generation of need

need reassurance

need direction

need love

need hope

need education

need money

need to find myself

need Jesus

I am from the strong-willed

and tough-love advocates

From the front porch games of

“that’s my car”

From backyard cookouts

and family in the same neighborhood

I am from New York!
