Every other sunday morning, after waking up my neighboring christians with the “hoopin’ & hollerin’" of my lawnmower, Nina’s “porgy” would greet me at the door.

On those “i’m goin’ to get me some 3lbs of crawfish, or an oyster po’ boy from the store up the street” days, Nina’s porgy would greet me at the door.

I remember Amiri Baraka tellin’ a story on Brainard St., to a room full of hopeful writers, about he and his wife (Amina) watching Nina from the top of a staircase, in some foreign country, play sweet notes on an out of tune piano the morning after cussin’ out every staff who happened to work there the night before.
