skaters

when we left the party
across the street,
there were only a few
straggler skaters
still out on the pond.
it's no commercial affair,
it's bring your own skates.
years ago, alex's gym class
would play hockey here.
now it's one of the
hottest real estate spots
in the city.
how the years change things. . .

once

if you've never
sung with an
orchestra
before, it really should
go on your
goal list.
it's one of those things
you just gotta
experience.

the feeling is
like no other.


of course milla
thought the
same thing
about the concert.


as soon as she
caught sight of me,
she was in hysterics
and had to be carried
out screaming. . .

temples

any time milla sees
one of stalin's
7 sisters
i hear from the backseat:
"mom! temple!"
and then of course the
correlating verse. . .
"i love to see the temple,
i'm going there someday. . ."

stalin would be proud.

of the old new york days.


very slightly.

efficiency

when i first saw these

poor souls

late that night,

i thought that dirty

towing brigade

is at it again,
making people miserable.
then i realized
they were just
keeping things tidy.

picking cars up,
clearing away the snow
underneath,
and putting them back again.
how nice.
