Ephemera: Chalk Marks

There is

but one

picture

On the solemn gray sidewalk

In the early afternoon

Unable to prevail

Remaining

Only a

Muddled

Pool of

Color

Flooding into the cracks

And

The creases

Of a face

Now

Distorted

In pain

Lost

In what was

A

Picture on the sidewalk

An ordinary picture

A disordinary picture

Of

A way of living by the grace of the solemn gray sidewalk
