Dodge the Hands


sunrise to full moon

a gauntlet from the start


from every mode of fashion


he panders “Buddy,

you gotta listen to my story”

as if from a ‘how to’ manual

for panhandler success

to empathy and sympathy


fifty cents or five bucks

I need booze,


I mean a coffee

food and shelter


too late

the alternate need

is exposed in the open


I reply in honesty


you got 700.00 dollars

as I need four new tires

for my car?”
