Corner of Claire & Jennings
The blind boy on the corner of Claire and Jennings
says my eyes feel very old;
I laugh. He's always made my soul smile.
The clatter of the passing street
with all of it's worn potency.
It presses itself against my ribs
a heated; brimming force
lips against lips; panting tongue.
The neon lights flicker uncertainly
a growl from parked cars; teeth bared
hungry for their meaty want and fatty pleasure.
Them, with their rusty door handles;
their lost, adored, hourglass ways.
I laugh again. They do not frighten me.
