From Brooklyn, with love

Each day, the cobweb bridge
weaves itself farther and farther away

into the city
inhabited only by spiders

where all of us hang from the tallest buildings
by a thread.

Late at night, the light is still on

In his repair shop,
the old man shines the shoes of the immigrants,

fixes the heels
with nails he holds in his mouth,

and glues
the broken soles.

Cromwell’s History

Nothing is discarded
or forgotten,

not even the silver earring
that lost its mate
when I was a child

and find again,
so small,

in the room with the scent
of moth repellent,

on the bottom
of a locked cupboard,

next to Cromwell’s History.
