Neighborhood

      looking like 
a postcard from 
   another time

      (those days 
before colour)

monochrome neighbors 
   in a monochrome
      neighborhood,

i always thought
el greco's toledo
      painting of a 
      city hillside

was one of the
   coolest things


   but this one's
black and white.

and i like it too.


and in those houses
      down the hill

      there are stories
lived and living still.
