day at the market

crayola faces

 

lighting the wind-spanked

market with animated motion, smells

bursting from their double-parked bodies   noise rising

 

from the pavement like prayers to assorted

gods on a universal day of worship    all hail

fruits and vegetables!  we venerate

sausage-on-a-stick!

 

arguments spill forth like water over the sandbags

holding back the flow of humanity, twisting and

writhing to a rhythm that can only be heard

 

by dogs
