The poetic city: “For A First Girlfriend On Her 75th Birthday”

For A First Girlfriend On Her 75th Birthday
Sometimes when I am driving down Claiborne
heading to the Marigny for some dancing 
on Frenchman Street…
I can’t help turning my head and glancing
just as I cross Jefferson Avenue,
as if to catch a whiff of a memory
Of a time and place so long ago
that it seems like yesterday.
