The Man on the Corner

The man on the corner tells stories.
He tells stories with sleeve tattoos and the
Open garage door spilling motorcycle parts onto the cement.
He tells stories with his rebel flag waving to rock-a-billy rhythms.
The man on the corner tells stories.
He tells stories with the tall red tool chest and
The smell of old oil mixed with solvent.
He tells stories with the upturned buckets for chairs and
The old milk crate filled with empty bottles of Bud.
The man on the corner tells stories.
