Howya

‘The end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.’

—TS Eliot

As I strutted down the new boardwalk on the Liffey yesterday, wearing sunglasses against the first shy rays of the Dublin ‘summer’, two local chancers checked me out.
    ‘Howya! Welcome to Dublin!’
    ‘Thank you,’ I replied in my best Brooklynese. I hate to let people down.
