Servies Rendered

Services Rendered 

On the side street, where the poet
took his nightly walk, shots resonated,
yelling, and a car driving fast;
on the pavement a man´s blood
was running into the gutter.
The police asked what he had seen? 

Nothing! 

You must have seen something? 
I saw a waterfall running down 
a mountainside in spring and 
the air was pure.  

Gangland murder?
Weeks later an envelope in his 
postbox, five thousand dollars.
The poet smiled at last someone 
had paid him for his poetry
