The Man with the Van

First I met Stanley.
He helped me find the Brooklyn Bridge.
Together we became the essential 4th and 5th passengers in the van.

The business man in his brand new
bright white Fulton Street Sneakers was thrilled for the lift.
The women next to me continued to "Praise the Lord"
because the ride was a "Holiday Miracle".

It did not feel like such a miracle on the walk home at 9:30 pm
in the 20 degree weather.
