Spring in Brooklyn, how I fucking love thee…

Sliced mangos and Pellegrino
For breakfast on Knickerbocker
Pulled pork and Delirium
For dinner at the ice house
Old Cubans shaving ice (con ceresas)
Boricuas squeezing all that winter fat
Into last summers’ jeans
Mexican pool sharks sipping on Negro Modelo
And West Indian girls down to swirl
BBQ in the park
Dominos in the shade
Sunsets on the roof
And Poker all night
Skateboarding at 2am
Late night bootycalls
Karaoke at Perks
And nursing a hangover with fresh orange juice
White folks in the Stuy
Ecstasy in the hood
Stiff drinks at Mo’s
And you can still smoke at Rocky’s
My black friends who listen to lite rock
My latin friends who say David Bowie is their nigga
The Japanese kids who bump BIGGIE
And the Hipsters who dress like they don’t own a mirror
The goddamn Guidos thinking its gangsta
To blast “if you like pina colladas”
In front of the Marcy projects
And all the young hoodrats
Not even knowing what to think of that shit
Fresh off-the-boat Platanas
Flashing smiles and singing Bachata
Canoas at Cuchifritos
Cockfights at the corner store
Satmars drunk on Purim
Yemenis selling 75 cent loosies
Russians running Grimaldi’s
Eating pizza on the water
And walking off the itis
On the Brooklyn bridge
The harder the winter
The more amazing the spring
The longer the cabin fever
The more starved one is for attention
For that even the most horrendous winter
Still has a silver lining
And if you’re in Brooklyn in the spring
How sweet it is
I Heart BK
