"A man must dream a long time in order to act with grandeur, and dreaming is nursed in darkness."
— Jean Genet

The woman on the corner calls out
Awwww honey, what you need?
Men sell klonapin and dilaudid
and balloons full of dirty chewing gum
A bearded man stands in the intersection and banishes demons
he points at me and I walk away as fast as I can
the man on the bus says
It’s not like it used to be
when I was in for murder, you were out in 5 yearsThey arrested the prostitutesand now only the desperate are left
The ambulances scream past
so many, I don’t hear them anymore
