Sdepan Keshishian: untitled

It must have been the saddest man
in the world;
with the elegance of a cowboy
naked in defeat.

I sketched his silhouette in chalk
As a relief
of the pity from persons passing

I trapped him as an image
somewhat near the Louvre

Guilt free is a
glare upon a shadow.
The dogs here,
they wear berets
and turn a passing jaw
to the street
and its tragedy.
as the chalk drips
off my elbows.
