Reality Series
by Tina Cane

I

today
on Sixth Avenue

sports coat-
junkie-man
on the same oldschool
skateboard as ever ragged

wheels but a beautiful
deck, wood smooth

as if the plank had
been tumbled in the sea

his right leg
a manic pendulum

skinny-looking
but strong

under thin
jeans hard to believe

he’s still
around

after all
these years
II

nine days
into thirty

and already
a gray hair

that won’t sit down
that springs up

from under
my palm

in the morning
in the mirror

a kind
of private joke

time marching on.
