Three Hasid Teenagers Smoking Cigarettes
in a Prospect Park Gazebo
While Listening to the Yankees on the Radio
Yes, I have no great old names
to compliment the hairy traditional drip
of my earlocks -- yes, I have no earlocks.
Yes the cattails rustle, yes the fuzzy radio.
Yes we all have cell phones.
Yes you three look at me, and yes
I look at you three. Our eyes not
narrowed are, yes, they are scared.
Yes my beard is longer, yes
I am much older, yes
your legs are stronger.
Yes your cell-phone-calling mothers,
then YES YES YES
a Tino Martinez homer.
