Rittenhouse Square Senryu 10/24/14

the man with all

possessions on his back

is free


pedestrians cheer

for the marching band’s song

while it’s silent


a baby in its stroller –

more pensive

than parent


the veteran stands

on the corner –

an unseen precipice


the empty skyscraper

looks full

from the outside



between strangers

sitting in the sun


men on the street

play chess

with passion


the inbred dog

is overwhelmed

by the human world


every end

begins with

a song


it’s hard to dance

when your hands

are in your pockets
