here's the corner of sloan and burdeno

what you don't see are too many houses.


what you do see
are weeds
and empty fields, where
houses used to be...


you can also make out
St. Cantius in the distance
which is closed now
like most things in Delray.

i knew a girl who lived in a house, just to the right of the frame.
i had a crush on her when i was boy
her brother died in a car crash
i think it was a car that him and his father were working on.

her house is gone now
too.

NE Detroit is following down that same path except we don't have marathon oil to stink up the 'hood, only skunk weed.
