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
