Poetry: Goodbye Arco

Goodbye Arco

I looked out

The driver’s window

Expecting familiar scene:

Folks filling cars

Or bumming smokes

(Taboo cuz ‘vid nineteen)

Usually at that light I turn –

Loud music as my car goes

With windows down

… a head nod!

From someone at the Arco

Taking pleasure in my Beck, my Cake,

Our native Counting Crows

Strangers at the corner Arco

Felt like they were my bros

My longing to be seen was met

As sad as it may seem

At Park Victoria’s turn light

At the time of ‘vid nineteen

Now no one at that light

Will connect with tunes I’ve got

Goodbye beloved Arco

I needed you more than I thought
