Night falls

Homeless backs sweep clean
the dust off paan stained sidewalks.
The dog sniffs his feet.

    • Funny, you asked. I was thinking about this today morning, and I realized that what I shold have written was this:

      Homeless backs sweep clean
      the dust off paan stained sidewalks.
      The dog sniffs a foot.

      I think this suits the imagery better. What I had hoped to convey was a dog sniffing at an unknown person’s feet as he & his brethren sleep on the pavement. What do you say?

      Glad to know you are better. Shall look forward to that update.
