PandG The White Naphtha

Recklessly
reciting poetry
on a street corner
in the noontime
business district
I endured
the taunts
of drivers stopped
at the red light
impatient to go
and suits
ordering hot dogs
at wheeled
vendor carts
while no one
appreciated
that I spent
three months
tracking down
an authentic
wooden soapbox
to stand upon
to perform
this exhibition.
