Magazine Street

Leaving Lafayette Cemetery,
destination Guy's Po' Boys,

I traipsed to the famed street
lined with art and antique stores.

Too far to walk in the heat and hunger,
I stood for a bus, when he started

chatting, a fellow Pennsylvanian
and music lover, in NOLA without

his late wife whom he nursed through ALS.
We both wanted to hit Ogden Museum,

impressed with the idea of self-taught
artists' work on display. But I never

saw him again, and in those three
Southern minutes, formed a nameless memory.
