Let's Pretend

Let's Pretend
to find the street vendor
where I once bought steaming hot chestnuts
on a winter afternoon

to find the coffee house
where I wore a black burlap skirt
and drank espresso in Greenwich Village

to find the street corners
where Allen Ginsberg read poetry,
the studios where abstract expressionists
pushed at the edges of art

Let's pretend to find the boundaries of memory.
