Coney Island, Coney Island…
Let me see,
Let me feel,
Let me know what is real,

Let me believe.
-Muriel Rukeyser, 1973
  from Houdini (c) Paris Press, 2002

When we first came across, Muriel Rukeyser’s strange, poetic and powerful words about Coney Island in her play, Houdini, many moons ago, we got chills. Now, more than ever, we find these words resounding with new meaning after the storm.  Each day, we revisit these words and they give us hope: “..Let me believe.”
