Bed Stuy

2 children jump
2 ropes
             and Vincent Price's voice
crackles through
blown speakers on the
side walk
Thriller
   MJ's dead now
      -it could be thirty years ago
but's it's now

because here
children still play outside
the concrete jungle
and folks sit on
their stoop
talking
yelling across
           
               to
           

              one
         

           another
                                                                 down the street
to
Shorty
  who owes them $
