Another Summer Evening On The Block - Poem by Neil Carpathios
Clothes on the line look bodiless and bored.
Roses dream of jumping down their stems.
A pregnant woman barefoot in grass-
inside her womb a planetarium.
Two old men argue on a porch
over what weighs more-
a laugh or a scream?
The guy in the sports car is thinking of the thigh
of someone he once loved
but wasn't in love with;
turns on the radio,
forgets what he was thinking.
The neighbor's brain-damaged cat,
from being locked in a Tupperware tub
by the five year old son,
staggers through daisies.
A failed marriage hobbles down the street
on gimpy legs like a broken down mule.
Everybody from their driveway points,
not recognizing it's theirs.
