they care not what they wear

only that they appear rich

somehow there is a difference

and it lingers behind in the

smell of perfume-

this place makes me anxious:

the cappuccinos, the lipstick,

the black cloaks-

I exchange a glance

with the busboy at the coffeeshop

we are conspiring,

we recognize being different,

we define community from the holes in our shoes-



*discovered and saved in Ottawa, Canada at the Benmore Apartment block on cooper street.
