There’s a man name Civility,

slowly being covered in


Slowly, the snow melts

on tattered, stained, woolens

in dark colors, holes in his shoes.

Walkers pass him by,

some glance at him, while others see

a lump of cloths.

Civility struggles to sit up,

and bids them a hello,

a good morning, a good evening

as  the sky darkens and the street lights come on,

A shadow from the darkness

moves from a broken,

a glinted of steel in a

gloved him,

towards a man in a gutter….

I currently have an e-book of poetry being sold for under a dollar for 99 cents, “Conflicts”.

Sales go to the support of my poetry and limited profit liability company, Stone Temple Micro-Finance and Research, L3C.
