Lines West: Our Little City

Our Little City

Is just large enough to

birth a few one-way streets.

4th won’t go north nor 5th, south.

Ute heads west to Utah, and Pitkin,

well, Pitkin east to Pittsburg if you let it.

In between these

cross-stitched seams, the usual

tapestry of love and hate, joy and fear,

crime and industry.  In the center, Whitman park,

lilacs and giant elms, old men with brown paper bags

and vacant eyes, all heading one way, everyone else, another.

                            — Frank H. Coons, 2013
