Cleaning Up the Neighborhood

Piece description from the artist

Another Astoria neighborhood shot. A common sight in New York.This piece recalls a line from a poem by Naomi Shihab Nye called "Arabic Coffee":

When he carried the tray into the room,
high and balanced in his hands,
it was an offering to all of them,
stay, be seated, follow the talk
wherever it goes. The coffee was
the center of the flower.
Like clothes on a line saying
You will live long enough to wear me,
a motion of faith. There is this,
and there is more.
