observed in brooklyn

Tattoos commemorating September 11th worn with pride. Unconscious fashion. Cubanismo that doesn’t translate to anywhere else. Overwhelming crowds. Cavatelli with sausage and red pepper flake. Fernet in a bar east of Oakland. Car service instead of cabs. Air conditioners instead of radiators, a blanket of humidity instead of a layer of fog. Old friends, old regrets. A decent bottle of Sicilian red. A desire to be home.
