with politicians who
plagiarize my thoughts
as I lift shoe leather one step
at a time leading to my
favourite side of the street.
This one’s full of candy wrappers--
no playing on streets should be.
Other important items
shake my brain impulses.
An ice cream cone too soft today
and my wife
shopping another pair of shoes.
Sure glad she caught
my attention time ago with
a gleam in her eye.
