Pant Legs Protrude

Gritty sneakers, one 

sock, raggedy pant legs protrude 

from a soiled pockmarked box 

abandoned in a doorway 

the wrest of him 

slumbers hidden 

in precious privacy. 

 

Next door excited 

people queue up 

for a grand opening 

salivating for pricey chicken 

and waffles and the hullabaloo 

of musictangledchatter to numb 

conflicted hearts.

I came to San Francisco in the late 60’s to pursue theater and dance, performed with small companies and wrote poetry too; discovered creative arts therapy as a profession and    worked encouraging people facing challenges to express themselves. Retired now, I love taking writing and art classes at CCSF.
