Hailed at: The Port Authority
Hails from: Afghanistan
I don’t make resolutions. I’m just trying to make money, save money, help my family out back home. I’ve been trying to work more—more shifts, maybe a second job. Maybe this year I’ll be able to do that. It’s hard to find work, though.
Hailed in: Prospect Lefferts Garden
Hails from: Red Hook
Oh shit, I totally forgot to make one. I don’t know. What’s yours? [To read more poetry.] Ha. Nope, not stealing yours. Maybe mine will be to find a new weed guy.
Hailed in: Times Square
Hails from: Hungary
No resolutions for me. I always say I’m going to lose weight or quit smoking, but I never do, and I feel bad about it. So I’m not going to do anything, and I feel great about it. Why beat myself up?
