SIXTH AVENUE

Street, flat out.

Oversize shirts, yellow

and striped.  Coats

without arms.  A song in

a walk; shoes envy the beat.

Broad strokes of colored hair.

A beard, a flash of checkered

pants.  Sandals and combat

boots.  A skateboard has lost

its rider.  Subways rattle.

Steam pipes hiss.

Rain coats under blue skies.

Hats without rain in sight.

Leather jackets.  Pins from

protests and concerts.  Sunglasses

expand the frame of eyes.

Earrings like chimes.  Pocket

books fat with stuff.  Briefcases

and bowties.  Dogs on leashes,

people with collars.  Creative

makeup.

 

The sidewalk is the parade.
