Babies

out of the store he comes

Carried in the arms of the man who is closing up.



Placed onto the sidewalk….. the end of the day requires two hands and a strong heart some nights.

the heavy metal gate is pulled down with a metal scream that seems to say business could be better…

Little red collar and tags,

Paws of a giant Akita or perhaps a German Shepherd ancestors paving future paths…

 and ears that are unsure of how they wish to hear the world…

He waits for his person.

I wait for my bus.

And the world turns around us.
