Sidewalk and Ball

. . . Tomorrow promises a finished

pavement, cemented in small squares

inch by patient inch. The jot

of red joy flung on concrete

is rediscovered, thrown hand to hand

out of the laborers’ way dancing

into the middle distance . . .

–excerpt from “Sidewalk and Ball” in A Light Dusting of Breath by Donna Pucciani (virtual artists collective/purple flag, 2015). First published in The Wonderbook of Poetry and with photograph by X Woods.
