S and D is the last whistle stop on your way to the Bronx
You take a seat as it rolls along under the painted rocks
Ducks swim by your feet in the whippoorwills
You hear the shouts of the mothers sitting on the window sills

It’s laundry day and the delicates hang on the fire escape
And the dying sun floods the baseball field about a quarter to eight
Young Dominicans they run on home to eat
As Merengue beats pump out of the cars down on Dykeman Street

Red Apple Rest
Flying up the Palisades west
Flowing south toward Lake Erie
Pour down your Niagara
Great rock and flow
Across the plans of Ontario
Flowing south toward Lake Erie
Pour down your Niagara on me

Daisies sitting in the vase are wilting from neglect
And the fact that you burnt the pumpkin pie is to me circumspect
Hallways with their wooden floors welcome you to walk
And the children playing down on the stoop are drawing with the sidewalk chalk

We walk out into the field to welcome the weekend bride
Potluck dinner and some conversation, sipping down a little red wine
Shadows dancing on the wall they flicker back and forth
And the candles burn deep into the night, for whatever it is worth
