gritty street poem

teeth on the sidewalk

how did they get there

I know how

because I watched the crust punks stomp the old man

under the streetlight 

in the parking  lot of Hanks Supermarket.

I didn’t intervene

because I kind of suspected that the old man said something or did something


or worse

I’m not sure if I remember correctly about the streetlight.

It’s possible there was no streetlight

and the light was coming from the side of the supermarket
