Jazz and the Downtown East-Side

or Where is Miles Davis When You Need Him?

One would think
with the amount
heroin addiction
there would
at least be
some good jazz—
but if there is
it’s well hidden.

All I see
is crumbling hotels
and developers salivating
with plans for gentrification
and people routinely being
mistaken for other things.

What Miles Davis would do
to help the situation—
I have no clue,
but hopefully
he could think
of something.
