SOL – 3/22



Sunday Sightings

mid life man and sprightly young dog
the man tugs gently,
the dog glances up, swishes his tail
before they cross the street

a jacketed figure with hood pulled down
in the doorway of the Social Security office
backpack propped, sleeping bag in a mound
he/she lights a cigarette

two young men in baggy pants
arms outstretched, palms up
they bow to each other slightly
and raise their arms to the sky

a woman carries the toddler to the swing
him once and turns
walking wearily to the bench
where she sits, after looking at her watch
