Slate Sidewalks.Posted: March 15, 2012
I like slate sidewalks.
Wait, hear me out,
Gradations of colours that melt in the rain,
All tones of grey, slick and sheened,
Or, on a dry day, feign desert landscapes
Rippled with clay reds to amber.
My boot heels cross with a hollow sound,
Sharper than on concrete,
No eyes needed to tell me where I am
When all I need to know is
I am on a slate path
