[please mind the gap]

by Jennifer Mack
facelifts & silicon lips
primped to look 20
scared a leaf might poke
knows dirt will hurt
designer ware
hardly an authentic tear
rich dirty is in
bum filth is out
donít know how to use bleach
but OH.....!! I do! I do!
the homeless guy next to me on the 1/9 does too.
wine & roses go nice with the park,
but do they really need this for free?
how come in Harlem not a flyer was seen?!
