Spent


 
The road
bulges gray, cynical and dusty.
Spent by sugary
cake eating denizens
spreading the good news.
 
By archaic beliefs
spinning
pious cloth.
(Remember to wash before wearing.)
 
By hell-fire fans
down at the local Dollar store
discounting
derelict pennies
who  roar once more
over the obsolete
Five and Dime.
