More Uptown

by Frank Mort Jr.

Wilson Ave.

See a guy,

With a shopping cart.

All "HIS" worldly belongings,

in that cart.

Treasures to him.

Trash to me.

One difference;

this dude's cart,

is upside down!

I ask him why...hesitantly!

He explains "wheels need greasing."

He further explains;

"can't take the noise!"

He explains all this,

as horns honk, sirens scream,

and gunshots whizz,


his life & mine.
