Old money and local shops.
This town is going out of business.
Individuals fleeing like a fly under a swatter.
Poor people stuck on drugs and like gum to this city’s knock off brand shoe.

    I like the brevity of this poem. It’s about the city of a state, one would expect it to be longer. But no, it is small, thus packs a punch. Love the gum on shoe line. Very well done.
