Sunshine and Shadow – January 2013
– near the Gowanus Canal, near where the dolphin got trapped and died the other day –
“end stop and frisk; hands off the kids!”
Standing on what used to be the boardwalk of a much wider beach. The debris has been removed, and all that is left are the concrete supports.
They’ve caught sand in the wind and formed a sort of dune;
within it are scraps of tile and vases, smashed in the storm.
The neighborhood today was silent, frozen, locked-down.
Buildings still burned out, power still out in places – sand everywhere.
There’s still a long road ahead.
