Poem: Standing in a Street

STANDING IN A STREET

By Katherine Givens

Here I stand in my corner,

As I do every day.

Silent, unnoticed,

Simply withering away.

I create stories in my head

For all passerby,

But none will hear the tales

Spurred by a sigh.

Bumped into, elbowed,

Shoved to the side,

I endure the neglect

For the chance to collect

Ideas for my journal’s pages

Before abandoning my corner

For my tidy writer’s nest.
