My Poetry

Cracks

What is narrow? The cracks between the concrete squares of the sidewalk are narrow. As much as people are looking down on their phone, we never seem to notice those cracks…

 

They say if you step on a crack, you break your mother’s back. However, if you step on a crack, you may just fall through.

 

Dark, narrow, and hollow yet we constantly slip between the cracks and mingle with what is below them.

 

Maybe we are looking down at our phones, maybe a high heel gets trapped, maybe we bend down to grab a penny showing Lincoln’s face, or maybe we are so vulnerable we succumb to the crack…

 

No matter how we walk across the path, we all sometimes slip and end up getting devoured by the silent, sadistic, sidewalk cracks.
