Green Street

for six years
it was the world

the perfect venue
for stick ball
and street hockey

a simpler time
with one rule

be home by
by dinner

time passes
the children
now long gone

off to the suburbs
or jail

a two-way-street
each leading

to somewhere else

    Reminds me of football behind the old grain elevator. Brings a pleasant sort of nostalgia that I think a lot of people can relate to. Simple, sincere, and worth sharing. Thanks

    I really like this one. It's a city and a street where I have never been but you convey the feelings so well I can see it perfectly.
