The American Apparel store on Houston is empty except for these mannequins.

Maybe this picture will one day help me answer my all-too-frequent question around the neighborhood: "What used to be there?"

The Double Yews at the Poetry Project

I'm looking forward to January 1, 2016, when the Double Yews (me, Annabel Lee, plus Randy Weinstein on harmonica and Ellen Waterscheid on piano and vocals) will perform two short poems, by Susie Timmons & Frank O'Hara, set to music, as part of the Poetry Project's 42nd annual New Year's Day 12-hour marathon. This is the most fun day on the poetry calendar,  Read More

The Big Short

Depressing that there are people who spend all their time thinking about money. Depressing that $30 million is a billion dollars short of a seat at the big kids' table. Depressing that people believed they could get a big-ass house for no money. Depressing that the banks never think about money as originating in or  Read More

Silent night

Christmas in the city, as quiet as it is post-snowstorm. Long walk, deserted streets, closed stores. Mesmerized by the BBC's quiet reindeers of the twilit Arctic.

That's how long we've been married, 8,767 days, or 24 years.

You just have to keep going, we decided at our annual review over dinner. It's the only time we talk about our relationship, & we usual keep it to:
Everything good?

We've known each other approximately 13,280 days, since the summer of 1979.

People seem to either get more irritated by each other as time goes on, or less. We are fortunate that for us it's the latter. Still the lovelight.  Read More

What is it II?

Spotted on East 5th Street.
The thing I showed on December 15 was for sale, so it had "value" even if I couldn't figure out its utility.

This, however: no idea. It's a couple of feet high & there are nails pounded into all those sticking-out bits.

It seems no more functional than the yellow crate but not necessarily art.

The mysterious East (Village).  Read More

Got a match?

Empty matchbooks from places that no longer exist.

This 24 Days of Discard isn't so hard.
