scratch pad salesman

Posted to Action Poetry




the goons with the brooms paint wide white stripes about the sides of red brick buildings,
and the trees in bloom bud large leaves for the catapillers to chew,
while on benches near the river sit hamburger eating fat fellows,
and the over priced pencil salesman stands sharpening number twos for the clients to view,
the postal office shrub trimmer eats thin sandwiches durring his break from trimming leaves,
and the soup maker boils broth from smelly bone marrow for the sweaty rail workers to barrow on tab,
