sidewalk by Bogdan Dragos

I am a sidewalk

one upon whom your
feet dragged heavy and
wet and tired

and I wonder where you
are going
and where you're coming
from

I look up constantly and
am tired of soles and legs and
panties and dropped coins
and litter

and indifference

Too many people, too few dogs
and cats and some rats at night

But you are
different. You wear no shoes and
your little feet are cold and
so delicate
and in your wake you are painting
me with a trail of blood

you are not in the mood to
receive compliments, I know. But
I'll say it anyway. You are beautiful

I hope he never catches you

I wish there was
something I could do
about it

    Oh this is so tragic and scary. I hope those feet get away. May the sidewalk act as a guide in the right direction. Very creative! 🙂

      Never thought I’d write from the point of view of a sidewalk, but, well, here it is :))
