Philadelphia Pulp by Ezra Solway
.
A homeless woman, crouching on the wet
Rittenhouse lawn, sniffs a donut.
Above her, a seedpod denotes.
.
Vapors of Ribeye, from the cart
On Walnut, sails leeward to the sun.
And slips of grease dot the pavement.
.
The bronze backside of William Penn,
As he gazes Northeast to the Elm
Of Treaty, is baking in the sun.
.
Staring, in the left corner of the Barnes,
Van Gogh’s Postman wonders
When Spring will blink.
.
If you ponder the pimples of a pineapple,
Fibonnaci. And before the gold
Casting of Philbert the Pig, a foundry.
.
It’s easy to forget Reading Terminal
Market was once a Railroad.
