Flatbush Summer Day
The summer of 2012, sitting on a chair in Brooklyn:
The scorching air fills the blocks of Brooklyn
On the block on Flatbush children run and scream
sprinting towards Prospect Park in Brooklyn
Trees surrounding the park blocks the sun,
Covering children from 100 degree heat in Brooklyn
The ice cream truck can be heard a mile away
children jump rope on the streets of Brooklyn
Parents watch their kids play as they gossip.
Aroma of jerk chicken smothers the blocks of Brooklyn
Police sirens in the hood are normal sound in the summer.
Hip-Hop music blast through the streets of Brooklyn
Summer 2012 for Misean was marvelous,
16, having fun outdoors in Brooklyn
