Poetry Silver Lake style

Silver Lake Verite
       by lalo kikiriki
The boy with the Dodger hat
on backwards
is ordering a 9-grain
egg and cheese
bagel at Winchell's.
"It's delectable!"

he tells his friend,
"So many grains!
So much fiber!"

He's a good-looking boy and
I marvel at his language.
I'm not kidding –
he speaks in exclamations!
His Dodger hat is,
incongruously,
in Raider colors,
black and gray.
He sings along
with Enrique Iglesias
"No me digas de amor,"

and he says he's Jewish
by law
since his mom
is Jewish,
but he looks a little like
Bonnie Prince Harry,
fair hair and zircon gaze:

"I'm likely to denigrate on that one,"
he admits.

 

So many grains!
So much fiber!

If I could give you one thing in this world, it would be the ability to see yourself as others see you.

That way, you would
realize what a truly 
amazing person you are.

Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic partnering with the Valentine Peace Project.org
Sharing poems with you!

VOTING - April 12, 10am - 4pm

Silver Lake Neighborhood Council Elections

Why does it matter? City Hall can see engaged neighborhoods by how many of us are voting. This can carry weight in future decisions. We want them to know who is voting, and from whom they can expect a turn out at the polls when they are up for reelection. 

Where to go, what to do, when to do it:
