Hilary Sideris

1609

It’s been so long
that when I text the link
to a Times piece about
Manhattan’s tulip trees
out of whose soft, straight
trunks the Lenape dug
their canoes, the trout
teeming in streams, the West
Side’s white sand beach,
so many flowers Dutch
sailors smelled them from
the sea, and say I thought
you would enjoy, my sister
answers, Who is this?

 


Many years ago, as a child with 20/20 vision in Indiana, Hilary Sideris shot her neighbor with a BB gun.

I Miss

the kind, stooped
beggar at Borough
Hall who sang Oh
please be careful
going up and down
the stairs and said
he loved my smile
whether I put
a dollar in his
White Castle
cup or not.
