Uncool Scene

     Shifty eyed men and women
standing around on a summer evening 
   Passing by them 
     I hear grumbling and veiled threats
Pays to be careful 
You don't want to become a newspaper crime story 
or another statistic 
    Summer in the vast metropolis 
Exciting yet dangerous 
I hurry past the crowd 
On the way to see my woman 
   She, too must be careful 
    to avoid an uncool scene 
city life requires caution 
So one can make the night smile 
In this - the asphalt homeland

    seeing this one again, I sure wish you would enter Deb's Summer in the city contest. I know of nobody else here that writes as well as you do on the CITY.

    Very cool, Matthew! I too live in the city....& frequent rough neighborhoods for specialty foods...I have been confronted....but am pretty big guy...& just stand my ground like I do when I come across large mammals on my forest hikes in Superior Nat'l. Forest & just carry a 8" military blade on my hip for good measure!....thanks for visiting my work!....jimbo
