The apartment complex on the
Southside of town, the side no
one lays claim to, is at the end of
one city and the beginnings of
another.
Grocery store, Laundromat, bar
Chinese takeout / donut shop, is
the scene to their windowed view.
Looming over a blacktopped
meadow covering it in a shadow
of low income housing taking up a
four block radius.
Residents push intercom buttons for
entry into section eight kingdoms,
bags of overpriced groceries
dangling from hands, while cheaply
bought momentary reality fogger’s
lay in pockets, waiting to take the
pain of a five dollar gallon of milk
away.
It’s a world all its own, a world where
a gallon of milk is more expensive
than forgetting.
