Monday Musings - David Bowie and All That

December 12, 2016

The David Bowie mural shines brightest in the

blackest stardust. 


In 2016, everyone had an Election Day playlist. 

What was yours? 


A wise woman once said, “you’ve always been crazy, 

this is just the first chance you’ve had 

to express yourself.” 


Those Dems. Those Dems. Since ’92:

All blue, New Jersey. All you.


But am I the only one who heard gunshots in 

The Heights the other night?


Dixon Mills sunrise –– its beams bleed into my lost

lover’s eyes, all tapioca with white lies… 


…And a solitary laundromat that stays open later

than one might ever expect.


Every Monday, GJC will be sharing a poem from John T. Trigonis, a local JC Heights resident, poet, writer, and coffee aficionado, in our Monday Musings.
