The other day I read a poem that showed me a street scene in a place that i had never seen. It was charming, insightfull, beguilling. HERe is yourr challenge:

Show me the streets
beyond the streets
that I know

We go about our business
along the streets we know

Main St., First Ave,
And the rest.

Our St. Home St.
Known St.

But most of the world,
Lives somewhere else

Tell me the tale
Of your home street
Where you do you business

Let me hear its language
Rhythm, and rhyme

show me a street
the streets I know

Your summary is filled with so many misspellings that the whole process of reading your work becomes a chore.

Spell check what you do!

Poet's need to take pride in what they publish!

Sounds as if you are trying to jumpstart my muse, LOL, thanks, Ed

I can show you some extremely sad and heartbreaking streets, John - where I and many others carried on some truly heartwrenching work.

They are described in two of my posted poems, 'The Ghosts of New Orleans,' and 'Where The Streets Had No Names.'
