We read aloud on the sidewalk eventually at kneeling level
The legs can only take so much

There is another world halfway down toward the earth
Cigarette butts come large, dogs are more our size

While a poet friend prepares
One of her new poems to read

I ask three little girl chums in very pretty rainbow wash clothing
If they would like to sit awhile and hear some poetry?

“Sure!!!” they cheer

They sit immediately attentive, dazzling keepsake wallets & purses
They hear the poem, talk about the poem, say they have written poems

The Earth momentarily seems healed

all true, I'm but a camera
