TENEMENT RISING

A Song full of horns fell out an  open

window, splashing the air while reaching

the sidewalk where passerby’s

failed to notice the temporary comfort.

Tenement dogs growled nervously at

barefoot children.  Colorful chrome decked cars

and men with hats cruised by.  A police siren

attempted order.  A young man ran into the alley.

Like a desert at high noon,

heat  fingers rose from the street.

An old lady carrying groceries hurriedly walks

up the front steps.  A buzzer sounds, letting her in.

She gazes back at the dogs.
