Sidewalk stops

Sidewalk stops
Where innocence lost
A forgotten rose left in the dust
Mind the crack
Don’t mind the cat
Stress was meant for breaking backs
Pavement thins
As streetlights dim
Night is shelter for the grim
All transgressions bathed in sin
See a penny
Pick it up
Between two sides is harbored luck
Flip for good measure
Give it a second
Fortune beckons
Here on this deserted street end

-E.E.
