Tenderloin, San Francisco

dried urine sidewalk
cigarettes held, blotched hands
shaking, they are all shaking
bodies longing for more drugs
needles, pipes, pills
addiction vehicles
wheels of poverty

some cradle little dogs
eyes surrounded by fur, they
only love their tattered, tired
tormented owners, who
through smoky haze
love them back
