He Stands

Small and denimed
he stands bemused
on the shabby corner
somehow
lending dignity to the street.

He sells
Daily News,
New York Times,
Rolling Stone, others.

The people who pass by
are unknowns.
Fifers and drummers on parade,
Sixties hippies
hanging on,
people of the streets.

Picnic
has organic food.
But down the corner,
the greasy spoon.

Across from him,
the railroad station,
prehistoric ruin of the past.

It is a relic
from dirty streets
and horse drawn carriage days.
Yet somehow,
he stands,
like the station,
making sense.
