(12/30) Around The Way

The prompt for day twelve over at NaPoWriMo: write a haibun that takes in the natural landscape of the place you live…


Every morning, an exodus of working class folk make their way through sunlit backstreets and side alleys where the ghost of crack vials dwell. Veteran ex-drug dealers and rehabbed junkies stand out on a stoop trading war stories while telling kids lumbering pass them to stay in school. The trees whisper about how many cars they will cover with pollen while cherry blossoms kamikaze sidewalks. A woman with ancestral hips saunters down the block; summer is just a sway away.


*************


sunrise greets routines
springtime comes to life at 8AM;
hips forecast future.
