City Block


along the way she gathered thoughts
gazing at the buildings disappearing behind her
store fronts filled with hopeful commerce
displayed eloquently glimmering new
people determined to find quality
inspect products for defects
others sit surrounded by food and drink
as the moment allows for relaxation
creatures await wide-eyed for morsels left
while hopefully dodging from being viewed
cars at different speeds roll down the guided pavement
interacting with walkers just like me
it is just a block from here to there
though history developed in this one square
