Gliding through

Baltimore, he says,

Voice thick with African 

French and a London

Education, “What you guys take

 

for granted, is luxury

to me.”

This is Poem #121 from the  Poem (almost) Everyday Project. Starting in mid-January 2016, I challenged myself to spend a year in which I’d wake most mornings and write a poem before my first cup of coffee. By the end of the year,  I had written 241 poems.  Here, I have published second drafts of  those pieces copied directly from my journal with minimal editing from their “vomit draft” state.

I have previously published this poem under the title

“Two Short Poems Inspired by Words I Saw or Heard in Baltimore

Oniel’s Car Service: Excellence at Every Turn!

“Baltimore is a beautiful city. The trouble with Baltimore is the people.” ~ Oniel

Agony means something

Different to each person,

Who sprays the word

With intentional black strokes

On the overpass.

 

The Congressman Who Drives the Cab

Gliding through Baltimore, he says,

Voice thick with African French

and a London education, “What

you guys take

for granted, is luxury

to me.”
