Chicken Noodle Blues

Chicken Noodle Blues

A Poem by E S Stevens
"

This poem was inspired by my interactions with individuals who were homeless in Philadelphia.

"
heads gazing down
staring into the sidewalk

waiting in line for soup
and small servings of hope

their shoes painted in dark blues
and liquid velvet jazz

a soulful sax cannot be oppressed
the heart cannot be silenced
