Evergreen Ave

Evergreen Ave

written by: Anne G



From kinder to sixth

I lived in a tall

four story building

on Evergreen Ave

From Stanhope to Harmon

the block was my world

the butcher, the grocer

Frank’s candy store

I grew up secure

surrounded by friends

family and siblings

cousins and more

Childhood innocence

guarded  by all

allowed me to flourish

inspired and strong

The street was my playground

the building my home

my neighborhood block

my whole universe

How could such a place

so remembered and loved

be ever forgotten …

not ever, at all!

The voices and faces

the smells and the sounds

are indelibly written

in my mind’s memories

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
