Paterson, New Jersey

I taught a college writing class in Paterson, New Jersey this summer at Passaic County Community College. Driving through that old city I saw many beautiful and tragic sights. Here’s a few of both.

Market Street – Paterson, NJ

The old man,
grizzled
cracked,
gums

the soft apple
he found
by the curb,
then squat against

the red bricks,
sharing stories
with a memory
I couldn’t see.
