Corn dogs, summer sun, and sea gulls the size of dogs. Being where the sea meets the city is sandy and gritty. I ate a mango on a stick and thought about eating a knish.
Lawrence Ferlinghetti said it better,
"The pennycandystore beyond the El is where I first fell in love with unreality Jellybeans glowed in the semi-gloom of that september afternoon A cat upon the counter moved among the licorice sticks and tootsie rolls and Oh Boy Gum
Outside the leaves were falling as they died
A wind had blown away the sun
A girl ran in Her hair was rainy Her breasts were breathless in the little room
Outside the leaves were falling and they cried Too soon! too soon!"
