ED WOODS


Dodge the Hands

 

sunrise to full moon

a gauntlet from the start

panhandlers

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,

Oops

I mean a coffee

food and shelter

 

too late

the alternate need

is exposed in the open

 

I reply in honesty

“Buddy,

you got 700.00 dollars

as I need four new tires

for my car?”
