The perky night
by Kelly Rice

I’ve been up and down the curb
Stalking the street for a taxi
It’s taking twice as long
For some reason this evening
It’s perkier than usual and it’s
Trolling with transients
Chasing to turn a trick
Up one block I walk
And then up the next
With my arm out extended
Hesetantly jumping off the curb
Looking to grab a ride
Only the taxis are all full
Of underage bar hounds
So I step back out onto the sidewalk
I’ve been walking for
Thirty-five minutes now
I near toward the block of
Twenty-fourth and Mission st.
From where I’ve started
Just earlier this morning
I stand there staring
At the entrance of the subway
As I wait at the crosswalk
For the signal to change
And I make the decision
I rather catch the train
Out of that barracks
Of this crazy fucking city
