Favorite Quote:
"the grass is always greener when it bursts up through concrete" XTC

Tall man takes long strides
Through the dark alley
An empty leather suitcase
Pressed against his worn suit.

He looks up, listening to music
Pour from an open window,
Coating bricks as it falls.
Heartbroken pianist
Who should only play,
But opens his mouth to sing.

Tenants huddled in grim kitchens
Widow churns thin stew
Child voices pierce her
melancholic shell.
Man standing outside the glass
Leans his head in to sniff.
