Beyond the Top Forty Parts of Town

i was never
drawn to the
A side of town
where everything
was fashioned from
fairy tale dreams
and everyone
played favourites

instead
i always
crossed the tracks
spending my time
on the B side
where i felt
more at home
and no one ever
was afraid
of midnight

  1. You must take the “A” train
    To go to Sugar Hill way up in Harlem
    If you miss the “A” train
    You’ll find you missed
    The quickest way to Harlem!
