Venetian Sidewalk

Venetian Sidewalk

   wandering along
      in hot sunshine
alongside the old canal,

      walls of heat
without doorways
   or even windows.


people came
      distant places,

just to see these
      wide canals.


   the hot sun 
shows no mercy

making the water
      look inviting,

   cooler than any
concrete sidewalk.


      floating sewage
or subtropical sunshine,

sometimes there are
   no good choices.
