Treasures for a young child
Shuffling along the curb
The young girl looks for treasures
in the gutters
of the quiet dirty street

There is no playground, park, or grass
for the child to play in

Just concrete,
and a small patch of ground
full of weeds, broken glass, and
the vomit of some drunk who
stumbled home last night
through a path of dandelions
and giant billboards

The little girl shuffles on
