in the heart of the city (pantoum)

Image

is it just bravado scrawl spray painted on the wall

poetry in motion captured by hopeful wishes

who nodded their heads to the rhythm of their world

colors spin creating pinwheels on cardboard corners

 

poetry in motion captured by hopeful wishes

on neon signs and streetlights that are understudies for stars

colors spin creating pinwheels on cardboard corners

between jump rope rhymes and double dutch dances

 

on neon signs and streetlights that are understudies for stars

the future glitters between snowflakes, raindrops, newborn or fallen leaves

between jump rope rhymes and double dutch dances

scatting the prayers of redemption

 

the future glitters between snowflakes, raindrops, newborn or fallen leaves

is it just bravado scrawl spray painted on the wall

scatting the prayers of redemption

who nodded their heads to the rhythm of their world
