Tomorrow

'I'm just
Moving.'

Thought the
Man as he
Huddled in
The ruins
img_0681_bluegreen_day_400Of a
Cardboard
Box in a
Back street
Alleyway.

The wind
Whistling,
Scraping
Empty coke
Cans,clanging
Down the road.

Chin
Tucked
Into scarf,
Muffling smells
Of stale beer
And Cigarettes
Lingering From
Tumbled
Trash
Cans.

'I'm just
Moving.'

He thought,
As he traded
Food scraps
And small
Bags of
Weed.

The couple
Strolled;
Swaying,
Laughing,
Drunk
Under
Twinkling
Street
Lamps;
As pools
Of memories
Played in
His eye.

The Commute,
Football in the
Park,Latte
Afternoons.

'I'm just
Moving.'

He mumbled;
Thinking how
The past
Lingers in
The air for
Us to breath
In.

He
Stretched
His arms
Wide as
The morning
Light washed
His face and
He thought;

'I'm just
Moving.'
