Crying Gargoyle

Animation of a poor, lonley Gargoyle.

“Hungry-eyed fogies,
gargoyles in full cry
above the ruck and tumble
of the street.
They stare through shadows at
a first-class loser, failed
at selling shoes, flunked
waiting tables, freaked
out at knocking holes
through cellar walls for
slumlord hovels, scratched
through flea-bitten nights
in far-off places, fumbled
over phrases for a shrinking ear.
Open mouthed, they shrug
me off, but I don`t care.
An empty bag, I litter-dance in air.”
