east 29th street, 7:20 p.m.

their eyes
cut comparisons and attempt
to make me bleed inwardly
as i stroll down the avenue
Black blight on a balmy day
interrupting their outdoor supper
no different than the ones
who hawk pleas for change
outside of the Buy Rite
i usually like to make them more nervous
by staring at them
like the zoo specimens
privilege and money has made them
along East 29th street
