The street swarms with Yankees caps!
The standard issue dark, dark blue
and red, green, beige, pink, yellow, too,
corduroy and pinstripe, tennis white and tough black leather,
GI or Mao style, the NY white on white, black on black, red on red.
Like birds of spring they carry news of ghosts remembered.
They go with wings to ride the curls of Hermes' head.
