Summer Night on the Block

Their darting eyes and sweaty backs

prisoners' anticipation

The humid air embraces them

Hopeful for their liberation

His jailbreak plan is under way

In hazy light's illumination

See there, hiding in the shadows

Could he be their hoped salvation?

Their hearts beat in rhythm with his

Time slows, dilated with motion

sneaking, now sprinting. He kicks the

can into joyful eruption

Breathless laughter and squeals of joy

Paired with freedom's exclamation

The clink, rattle and scrape of a

coke can dry of all its potion
