il mio villaggio

A view of the backyard

Four square miles of single-family homes in bucolic neighborhoods. Nestled among myriad Maples of forest along the foothills of the nearby Ramapo Mountains. Often equated with the larger, more famous village to her west.

I have an ambivalent relationship with her these past 17 years. Nevertheless, this village is my home.

a maple-lined street leading
to the mountains
I still listen for echoes
of our children playing
