Negotiate by Kenyatta Garcia

Negotiate the lines

the blocks broken into squares

into hopscotch

chalk blurred by use and drizzle

 

And remember ‘not everyone thinks you’re funny.’

 

As wit is swept from the stoop

with leaves and litter

consisting of butts, bottles, receipts, wrappers

and lotto tickets – all losers.
