​State Street

December 22, 2017

PROMPT: Intersection

I always thought the name was boring
who wanted to be reminded of the government or
fifth grade history class 
on the way home from school? 

but the street defied its name 
with beauty in unexpected places
the soft glow of neon red and blue 
reflected in crisp mounds of snow
the gentle blinking of stoplights 
on beat with my footsteps and the humming of radiators

there was really something
about the way the crosswalks drew you in
A triangle of white stripes in space 
beckoning into the valley downhill

state street stayed illuminated
a drop of dew nestled in a spiderweb of roads
it is a beauty no one asked for
but still it waits, cheerful
for someone to discover it.
