A Nice Day

walking down 

always treacherous

especially when it rains

even more so when it snows

steps to the subway

but today the sky

blue and sunny

the sounds of the city

happy

maybe too happy

notice the homeless man

sleeping under unfolded newspapers

the smell of piss and vomit

no effect

it feels like what a perfect day

should feel

women walk around

in weather appropriate attire

some men appreciate it

the birds

chirp

Sing

fly

even the cabbies

take it easy

making their turns

into traffic

like everyone just wants to enjoy

this first nice day

of the year

I call NYC home and wish the subway went everywhere and Times Square didn't suck. I saw John Turturro once. Maybe it was him. He was wearing a yellow shirt and smiled at me like he knew I knew. I am an Army vet who writes. I like characters who want more then they deserve. I like genre fiction. I love space. I love paladins. One day I might write a paladin in space story. Just you wait. The university of South Florida spit me out with a degree in creative writing and I find myself questioning the sanity of going to a school that advertises a fake beach on its brochure ever since. I intuit grammar. I Got married in 2012 We had twins in 2015. I do a lot of cooking and dog walking and ranting about the unfairness of sentience.
