Breath & Shadow

Winter 2010 - Vol. 7, Issue 1


written by

Sergio Ortiz

There is no simple way

of getting misplaced

in the city: too many signs,

landmarks, and directions.

I'd run, no walk, to be lost

then found in miniscule


so minor strangers turn

their heads and ignore

my mismatched shoes.
