Earthquake Dream, 2014
I had a dream that Brooklyn rent in two. The fault line grew near DUMBO/Brooklyn Heights and sprinted east through Bed-Stuy, half to sea. Water poured forth from earth as the line ran; eventually, a scar-like channel formed. Because I lived in Bushwick, near the split, I counted myself lucky, among those who had some time to choose from north and south; who had some time to think of lovers’ beds, or else their kids at home with milky breaths and nearby parks where they could walk their dogs.
