Out on the corner.

life flows and weaves, like the blood that courses through my veins.

I see new faces and old, but it’s the consistent heads that i have grown accustom to. It is them that form the foundations of a life-force contained within a crossroad.

A once apon a time swarve shyster takes to corner as the sun slinks off behind the buildings, his weathered, leather skin tells the story of dreams bluggend by the demand and ruthless nature of an infectious city, history berried in the wrinkle on his brow and eyes that have seen love and hate wrestle and shake hands in one day.
He checks the time table as a force of habit and posts up on the wall. Brim askew and slacks dated, he runs his eyes over a form guide, with dime hope it be his salvation.

I call her Cleo, although we have never meet. Named after Cleopatra, however she is only half the queen she once was. her hair is long and graceful, it hides the scares that people base judgment on, the makeup serves to extinguish years and bring youth back to her charm. she smiles and poses to the cars that roll past slow, she is more then obliging to conversate over the passenger seat and will be your company for as long as your worth.

Wasted youth is the last organ on the block, young bloods encapsulated by self loathing and escaping reality with booze and drugs. left to biodegrade fast amongst neon lights and diesel fumes. they will fight for there right to slip beside the way, harming no-one but societies expectations. 20 something with stories of hard times and tragedy, though excuses are easy success in the face of adversity takes true hart.
they are the muscle. they are the most frowned apon. a junkies morals and a rum heads lack of emotional control, fire crackers and on more then one occasion the entertainment.

i see it all from my window. so i thank the block, i love the corner.

Out on the corner.
