A soul close to heartbreak.
Vice pandering on the MLK. (Martin Luther King Expressway)
40 oz to the heathens.
Sun beats down as he paces.
Down and out leathered faces.
Cardboard billboards advertise the story, “I ain’t good
lookin enough to be a stripper”.
The slogan worked.
He’s found a big tipper.
One dollar bill.
One drink on federal hill.
One moment of even keel.
Hard times in the city of charm.
Everyone is up in arms.
A gun shot blazes.
A child yells at the top of her lungs,
“All lives matter”.
