Two dollars burn a hole....

Leather soles and a backlashed whip..
Momentum pulls pavement, 
As cinders scurry the concrete..
Plumes of whistled welding, and the core's heat..
Walls cackle with thrown car horns and hard braking...
Oil pools with it's rainbow slick..
Gunshots and the fleeting feet quick..
Body slides and slumps, reaching for the light..
An old man climbs the dumpster..
Two dollars burn a hole..
Drafty measures, coupled with sharp remarks..
Bitten into bone..
Rolled one for four...
Split wood and bleeding brows....
Two dollars burn a hole.....................TAH

    Very well penned of all the street violence in our towns and cities...regardless of how small or large the city is, there are always those who choose violence over peace. Blessings...Anne

    Always great for a second read. Where are all the rest of your verses? I thought you had many more than this.

    Deep city violence so passionately portrayed. I can only imagine. Just a great effort Tobey.
