“Children of the Sidewalks” by Jankins Prinkensplatt

January 28, 2010

Children of the sidewalks
and the gutters
of LA,
old children –
a woman a year too old for this
blotto on the sidewalk, seductively:
“only fifteen minutes till they stop serving alcohol,”
she moans. “the liquor store closes in fifteen minutes.”
She pouts and then laughs and puts her cheek on the sidewalk,
holds up a cigarette,
in glitters and high heels,
“you want to go?”
“it’s up to Allen.”
she stands up, stumbles, sits against a wall,
meanwhile
the music from inside is like a lake
that everyone swims in
