Alleyways - Poem by Matthew Foor

Moonlit slumbers
Under veiled stars
Orange glow above city streets
Damp back alleys
Home to forgotten memories
Junk cars sleep in peace
While falling to pieces
Feet drag
Atop uneven concrete

Shadow casted in front of me
Then behind
My guardian angel
Through these arteries
Of the city
Quiet dwells
Unlike the main veins of traffic
The occasional dog
Yelling in foreign tongue

I mostly navigate alone
Sometimes a brother by my side
Brother of written verse, that is
Our journey to the local CVS
Breads conversations
Exchanges of laughter
Bounce off of trash cans and
Garage doors
Serious words touched
Every so often

Living together
This brother and I
We have much to spit
House rules
Rumors and deep thought
Never anything too serious
Just shootn' the proverbial shit.
