Flood And Tonhawa

at the corner of Flood and Tonhawa
a mohawked man with a Mountain Dew
statues in the middle of the street
and dares oncoming traffic

four blocks north
stands a bed and breakfast
to destress you
all you can afford
there's a shitty little shack
with a yard full of junk and a sign
offering something for nothing

in the library
homeless ladies gossip
rest their feet
and praise the Lord

For Susie's prompt at Real Toads

Oh this is wonderful! I can't pick a favorite part. Small town living, nothing like it. Thanks for writing!

So very different from anything I see... Love how what's ordinary for you is exotic for me... It takes keen eyes to see and defamiliarize to be able to pen it for us to see.

Your eye for detail makes me wonder about each life being lived by the strangers around me.
