How We Must Have Looked

(Photos by Joe) How we must have looked as we traipsed uptown, the four of us and an invisible boy from a dream . . . We stepped out from the shadow of the row homes on East 6th Street and into the late afternoon sun on 2nd Ave. The boy, whose name was James, became diaphanous in the brighter […]

(“Home” – Photo art by Joe) “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” – Michelangelo on creating the David. Weeks ago I told Benny, “the cigar store Indian,” about a haunted house in the East 50’s that mysteriously disappeared. My lady friend(LF) and the pizza and Chinese delivery guys(aka num and nuts), were […]

Avenue A in the East Village

(Photos by Bald Punk) I couldn’t post yesterday because we had a power outage. I was in Staten Island and the whole freaking place was pitch black. The place looked the best I’ve ever seen it. Tomorrow I will put up the next story post titled “In My Head.” It will pick up where White Fire left off. […]

(Photos by Bald Punk) I’ve made so many excuses about my photos in the past and on these, I’m going with: “I was cold, hungry, and it was a Sunday.” The one above came out nice. In the future I promise better work. Though I want you to know I did sit down on the […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – Birds Leaving Tompkins Square Park) I can’t get the eyes of a demon named Old Seven out of my head. At all hours of the day and night, I can see him staring at me from Avenue A in the East Village. I confided in a clairvoyant known as Benny, […]

The Eyes on Avenue A

At night on the streets of NYC I’ve been hearing ghostly music. It usually doesn’t rise above the typical city noise. The music is mostly that of a solo piano, brass or stringed instrument. When I pay attention, I find myself envisioning a lonely ghost in a back alley, honing his craft. If I had any fears over the music, it’s only for my sanity. Then one night out with […]

Music of the Night

  (U2 – “Hands That Built America” – Music Video by Bald Punk) From the moment we stepped outside our Upper Manhattan apartment building, I was in a bad way. The pizza and Chinese delivery guys(aka num and nuts) knew it. They kept shooting glances at me when my lady friend(LF) wasn’t looking. They tried to […]

Dreaming of Lincoln

(Abraham Lincoln) I met this kid who looked like Abraham Lincoln. I’m still referring to him as a kid even though he was a junior in college and 6’4.” Fresh-faced with an uncanny presence, he said his name was Alexander and that his nickname was Buddy. I called him Alex. It wasn’t until our second […]

THE FIRST MISTAKE

As a rule I avoid talking to strangers, and my guard goes up when they talk to me. The most an interloper will get out of muah is a furrowed brow or at best, a grumble. Yesterday, I not only broke my rule, I initiated a conversation. And now I find myself unable to get the stranger’s […]
