More Uptown
by Frank Mort, Jr.

Wilson Ave.
See a guy
With a shopping cart.
All his worldly belongings,
in that cart.
Treasures to him.
Trash to me.
one difference,
this dud's cart
is upside down!
I ask why hesitantly!
He explains "wheels need greasing"
He further explains "can't take the noise"
He explains all this as
horns honk, sirens scream, &
gunshots whizz through
his life & mine.
