We'll be presenting a poem from Emily XYZ in issue 2. In the meantime, enjoy this piece, "Frank Sinatra," from Emily and Myers Bartlett, performed at the Cornelia Street Cafe in New York City, November 14, 2008.
I am not the Avenue of the Americas;
I have never been topless at Billy's Topless—
no one in Manhattan ever called the Avenue of the Americas
the Avenue of the Americas we called it Sixth Avenue.
