I took a walk…13april2013

I took a walk
Over the bridge
that crosses the river
no ducks today

What’s with that white house?
Still renovating?

Pass the old mill
glass strewn on the sidewalk
Lady pushing a stroller
chubby blond tot

Turn right at the corner
liquor store, barred neon windows
black SUV in the parking lot

Pass the Catholic school
that closed in September

Stop at the gas station with the 7-11.
Needing some chocolate
buy hazel nut bar

Up the steep hill
pass the red Chinese restaurant
Salvation Army is
busy today

Stop at the bakery
it’s genuine French
get a croissant

Hill’s getting steeper
hospital on top

Take a deep breath
from here it’s downhill

Three guys in nikes
shoot hoops in the park
smoking girl’s swinging
and checking them out

Shuffling man
searches the dumpster
outside the bar
looking for cans
to sell for recycling

Orange cat peers out
from beneath an old Chevy

Over the bridge
that crosses the river
no ducks today

I took a walk
