A Day of Duality in Brooklyn by Alex Gaynor

Waking up to harrowing news of subway shootings and terror
Happening on the most beautiful day of the year thus far 

An unsettled anxiety pacing the small room of my studio apartment 
Giving way to sunlit afternoon strolls among the daffodils 

Sitting outside the Brooklyn Museum watching fountains spray like gunshots 
Trying to fathom the fact how this world is so intermingled with pain and wonder
