My Brooklyn

My Brooklyn has fresh air

And

Fresh beats

Sounds rhythmically spontaneously harmoniously created

By many drums

My Brooklyn has Live Jazz music in creation escaping the widows as I walk by

My Brooklyn has acai juice and open air markets and murals of the Caribbean.

My Brooklyn has beautiful women always with hair and nails done

My Brooklyn has boys and men with Flat-brimmed Brooklyn hats retaining the branded circular sticker

My Brooklyn has children racing down the sidewalk

My Brooklyn has strangers who open doors and say hello as they walk by

My Brooklyn knows that while I lack a physical congruence to the majority We share a similar soulfulness

 

 

-Carrie Able, summer 2014

Thank you all for sharing in my journey of creation. I am humbled to be living my truth everyday. Aloha nui loa to my collectors who have always believed in me. - Carrie Able
