Bleecker Street at night in the rain.




Bleecker Street at night in the rain.





Bleecker Street:

It’s a lovely June afternoon

and I’m heading up Bleecker Street

for a hazelnut espresso latte,

the kind made out of real hazelnuts,

not syrup, hoping it will empty me

of all my bickering ideas about love

and fate and immortality

so I can hear the fertile songs of spring.

Miguel de Unamuno—whose name

is impossible to say without smiling—

believed “self-love widens into love of all that lives.”

Thank God for Unamuno! For hazelnut lattes!

But the infinite archeology of my stupidity

prefers the charms of self-pity

to the equilibrium of self-love.

Perhaps these three Chinese girls

giggling into cell phones, lavishly spending

each moment of their youth, truly believe

the mountain of self has no top

and each breath is a reckoning with fate?

Perhaps these shiny boutiques, each

so resolute, so eager to please, are weary

of decorating the illusions of another century,

prefer the runaway slaves they hid in their root cellars,

their dreams of slaughter and deliverance?

Perhaps this beautiful blond woman,

screeching to a stop in a lilac Mercedes,

pursued by wailing police cars, finally

understands that it is not only for the soul

but for the mind that happiness is a necessity?

“Is the rich bimbo stoned or just stupid?”

an old man, radiant with rage, screams.

Perhaps everyone secretly admires

something momentous about himself,

with the mass and “inner life” of a cathedral,

in the tradition of the Spanish saints and mystics

who cherished the bliss of infinite sacrifice?

Perhaps this street remembers the loneliness

of war widows, the roll calls of absent names,

its first kisses on the corner of West Tenth Street,

the swooning confetti heat of victory,

the scalding springs of defeat? Indeed,

this street is a wave of advocacy

and streaming window peonies and tulips,

a fierce glimpse of history, an echoing

of nightly gunshots, a flag of black pigeons

flowing east toward the end of a continent,

a hunger for immortality, a tiny brusque city,

a bickering idea, a useless boutique,

a fertile song widening into a love for all that lives.

The table awaits. Kim got none of her elegant decorating ideas from me. While I did bring a bottle of Boone's Farm Blue Hawaiian, Kim had difficulty unwrapping the duct tape from the brown bag to gain a better purchase on the screw top, so we just went with a couple of Jim's fine wines.
