When NEW hits our small town-i am Zen
Awaiting the birth of wonder-
when Whole Foods opened,i was there
and Central Market-even SPROUTS with its false promises
(I keep waiting for TRADER JOE's-but -o no!
now the closing of wonders-end of venues
Liberty Lunch -gone.EMOs moved-no poetry @HIDEOUT
6th street unsafe even for surveillance cameras
APD overpaid and unprofessional-shooting people
Two APD vehicles for every one driving offense.
Valet parking-no spots for us.Curfews.Sports.Violence
Overpaid sports coaches,underpaid academics.
I await the rebirth of wonder-when MACC opened,i was there
same when THRICE replaced Cafe Caffeine
and FULL ENGLISH CAFE became a mini-England
When AIPF blooms again-i will be there
You will be there,too!And we will share the lines
(these-and 10,000 others-that wind behind every fresh attempt @Paradise!
