The Stars Aligned

There’s tension in this city…. this country…this world……Old hat? perhaps…it’s always been there….now it  feels uglier…..less palatable…..

A mistrust between races has reached the summit…an eruption coming…..Lava  spilled in Baltimore……Cleveland…..Florida….New York…..St. Louis….good luck putting the fire out…..this burn is not controlled…..

Political practices pitting whites against…..well….everybody whose not white…..blacks against……well….everybody whose not black…..Mexicans…..Hondurans..Dominicans…..Jews against Islam…..hell…..everybody against Islam….And the toxins are flowing in The Hudson….The Mississippi…..The Ohio…. not a breath is taken…. fear that it might be the last…..

The 21st Century feels like the previous…..Greed is good…..Crack is whack……The Cold War reignites…..Israeli and Palestinians have yet to agree on anything…..And…despite thousands dying on an early September morn…..America is still as arrogant as ever……Hey you….watch your step…….

It is Easter weekend in NYC…. on corners stand cops in numbers….Anti-terrorist officers…..National Guard personnel…..and an on-going reminder of HIGH ALERT…..Not again…..New York runs as smoothly as New York can…..Conservatives counting on a de Blasio fumble in the fourth……So-called Liberals hoping for an on-going momentum…..Just keep the ball moving…..

All are watching the clock….The scoreboard tells nothing…..a blank slate….There has to be a winner and a loser….it’s the American way…..a country looks-on….

And me?……….. I’m waitin’ for my man……..$26 in my hand…..

Thanks again to Lou Reed…RIP
