corner market



running down the hot sidewalk
2 coins jingling in his pocket
anticipation of orange soda
his own bottle, just for him
shaved head reflects the sun
shoes slapping, coins jingling
anticipating

  4. The language really moves! This is as terrific as I remember all of your poems. Nice compression of imagery throughout.
