      Original post

      After a long day the taximan comes home

      Crown Heights brownstone

      ramen noodles on the dinner table

      give thanks to the Lord and say grace

      Sternpost mizzenmast fore and aft varnished maple

      the taximan paints a finishing touch on his son's model schooner


      Crabapple trees

      in the land of make believe

      Fairy tales hopes and dreams sail across Prospect Park Lake

      floating on the end of Noah's string


      (orchestral interlude swells; a whirlpool of counterpoint)


      Follow in the footsteps of my artisan father

      I have worlds to conquer
