After Work By Richard Jones

coming up from the subway
into the cool Manhattan evening,
I feel rough hands on my hearts-
women in the market yelling
over rows of tomatoes and peppers,
old men sitting on a stoop playing cards,
Cabbies cursing each other with fists
while the music of church bells
sails over the street,
and the father, angry and tired
after working all day,
embracing his little girl,
kissing her,
mi vida, mi corazon,
brushing the hair out of her eyes,
so she can see.
