black headlines
the aroma of ink
and paper

the rush of shoes
over stained sidewalks

a heavy coated
man runs by

a couple pause
holding hands

a dog dragging
its leash
weaves through
the crowd

today’s news,
tonight a welcome
blanket for
the homeless

editors note:

There’s no news like good news; good for cover, that is. – mh clay
