Under Brooklyn Bridge

It seems like an hour ago that I came
underneath that Bridge, an arch and entry
to the great New York, New York.
Ancestors had come before in bad times
meta recession times and hungry days,
from Ireland, place of departures and farewell.

A grand uncle, to be a Bishop,
an uncle, to be a New Yorker,
