? Marks the Spot

Why the fuck
do all the dudes in Brooklyn
look like owls or balled bugs
with horn-rimmed glasses
and tiny shoes and tiny hats?

They are all skinny crocodiles
like Jamie from Grey Dog,
with his jeans slightly rolled,
showing his socksless ankles
question mark.

They are all
waiting for riches,
selection varied
by parents.

Why do most rivers
flow south?
I am a north-flowing river,
not as cool
as most, but mostly cool.
