Slipping Through the Cracks  

 

I threw a dollar in the hat

but it was so much more

than that.

 

There was heart;

 

There was blues slipping through

every sidewalk crack,

beautiful chords flowing

from worn out sneakers

 

and fingers

 

worn to the bone,

still strumming

to a chorus

 

only old souls can hear.
