Quadrille 71

The wind homeless, shaky,
panhandling for drink,
then January blows into the street
like Dillinger from a bank –
it’s murder, fire exchanged in cold blood,
everyone diving for cover.
The not-so-great depression –
sunshine bitter, on the dole,
brother can you spare a dime?

  1. You had me at /January blows into the street like Dillinger from a bank/. Great creativity! I feel quite similar relative to the arrogance of winter, the bullying.
