Uptown, A Walk Through

Uptown, A Walk Through

I am the tarnished penny abandoned on the sidewalk
the lone glove left on the fence post
the key-shaped pacifier gathering grit on the park path
I am that plastic bag floating, caught in the shrubs
the empty Starbucks cup blown into the curb
the scratch-off littering the pavement in front of the 7/11
the limp condom by the loading docks behind Ace Hardware
I am the footprint in the snow between

The House of Prayer and the House of Hair.
