Scenes from an Urban Walk

Stirred by the thought of what is across, the pedestrian
Dismembers the zebra crossing with his walkthrough
Finding the other side of the road filled
Awaiting, to pass him by

Sketched over walls – the poetry of posters and promises,
With phone numbers and names. Built around them
The city dissolves into cubes and spaces
An occasional shadow of an aeroplane

Walks into the shop that sells everyday items
Walks into the section of bathroom supplies
Beside him an old woman without teeth, staring
Into the arranged emptiness of rows of products
They eventually discuss expiry dates
