Poem: Gina Goldblatt

Broome St.

lungs are full of smoke down on Broome Street
foamy voices babble out a cacophony of sounds
a flagrant boisterous symphony

plucked from the fingertips of late nights in melody
neither tendon nor freckle
out of sync

the children of a wise discussion on visionaries
urchins of the night
garlanding their balconies with carrot flowers

the men and women in the apartments above
dreaming brilliant dreams of puppy dogs and string instruments
seduced to hugging their bedposts with upturned sleepy smiles

~ Gina Goldblatt is an aspiring writer who attended Suny Purchase College in New York, where she earned her Bachelors in Literature. This is her first appearance in Elegant Thorn Review.
