2020 Albuquerque American Place Poems

Sitting Waiting

Sitting in a skateshop
Boy’s buyin’ a board
Old man sitting
Under origami
Birds Flying
up the glass
As he looks
For a home
For the night.

City living
Breathing life;
Sounds of
Cycles, cars
A fight,
the honks
And groans
Of an otherwise
Still afternoon.

By Makar
