JUST TAKIN IT IN

i’m sittin on a bench
at perry square
in the center of erie pa.
across from me,
three young african americans
in their twenties
hold hands in prayer.
i have no complaints.

a white man in his late forties
to early fifties,
holds a bottle of hard liquor
in a paper sack
and takes a swig,
then passes it around.
i’m blendin in with the scene.
i have no complaints.
