A Slice of City Guilt

Slice of LIfePart of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers

You are on the side of the road
                      on the sidewalk

with a cardboard sign 
                     "I need help" 
                     "I hate to ask" 
You are hard to pass
You look about 
my daughter's age
(She's not even 16)

But 
I pass
                    But 
                    I 
                    pass
                    
You look about 
my daughter's age
                    But 
                    I 
                    pass

My eyes heat up
You are hard to pass

                    But 
                    I 
                    pass
Late for dinner
