Man on the Street

He throws his head
back and laughs
at the sky
Speaking to no one in particular

Thank god I am surrounded
by perverts
and the lowly
and the under whelmed

Thank god I am beside
the drinkers
and the thinkers
and the smokers in the alley

Thank god I am with
the over educated
and the unhappily employed
and the ranters the ravers

Thank god I am among
the open minded
and the muses
and those with lofty dreams

–From “Kink in the Chain”, 2013
