Better Than Real Because It's Not.

(Sep 20) A return to the San Gennaro festival. I haven’t been since I left Brooklyn. It has gotten smaller and has become overrun by iPhone accessories.

i look like my brother here
Your author, looking harried

i don't know what it is i'm hoping to capture here, but i never find it
Through the tunnel

a donut was reported missing
I was actually asked if terrorists might come to San Gennaro. I suppose this is the post-Boston way of things.

this might have been witty 30 years ago
Someone didn’t get the memo. We don’t have hippies anymore, now we have hipsters.

spend money please
The width of the street surely hasn’t changed, but it feels cramped now.

doesn't even cross my mind
You know,… it never occurs to me to eat any of this stuff

money to be given to the poor
Saint Januarius

someday soon
Someday, this will all be part of Chinatown

not that it contributed positively toward the festival's authenticity
The “Drown the Clown” carnival game is no longer a part of it.
