niagara falls...

the phrase popped up
a debate ensued...

whose routine was it?

abbott and costello, the stooges, lucy.
they all did it.

this is close to the version i remember

some mornings...

some mornings everything i see seems
worth recording.
today that might be because i awoke at
four thirty am
and had consumed a goodly portion of
peet's sumatra blend
by six thirty.

at five i had stumbled upon a short film,
'on detour with manny farber',
which had me wide awake immediately.
it's on pbs saturday again on saturday morning at 5:30.
seek it out. or google his work:

it was probably farber
who made me
see things
this morning.

whether masked or open
yesterday's parade
celebrating mexican independence
was all about

goodbye cheyenne

the cheyenne diner,
corner of 33rd street and ninth avenue,
is no more.

it served it's last club sandwich
more than a year and a half ago
but until this week it stood
where now there's a ragged hole
surrounded by chain link.

it was much like any diner
anywhere. everything was
kind of greasy.
the coffee sucked.
the staff was
usually surly or
but it was always there
and kinda cool
and, after all,
you want your fries greasy
or what's the point.

i took these photos
on october 16, 2002.

when i take the e train
instead of the 1
the billboards
are too enticing
to pass
without shooting.
