Dole Day

 

 

He folded his lottery ticket

Like a handkerchief.

In his top pocket.

 

Like spurting champagne

The tramp puked up.

In the fine rain.

 

A delicate spider’s web

Sparkling in the wet.

Like a necklace.

 

 

 

EnCounter

 

Slouched at the counter or desk; the opposite of statuesque.

A sort of active indolence; a sort of passive insolence.

A sort of excessive leisure; an expressive pleasure.

 

She arrives expressionless; giving away nothing.

The 'Scrounger' at least giving of himself.
