Ready

It happened around 10:05.
Tears.
The final rinse of the season.

Goodbye 2 train.
Goodbye familiar-faced strangers. (I’m sorry I never said hello.)
Goodbye you who took care of me…  who made me lunches, iced coffees, and brought me more diet dr. peppers than I dare count.
Wa alaikum assalam to my friend at the store.

Goodbye sweet families.

Goodbye struggle..inadequacy… anxiety… striving.
Goodbye beauty…peace…redemption…laughter.

Goodbye brown-eyed beauties, you champions of the South Bronx.

Thank you GOD for the past 4 years.
