Time Expired
By James McGurk

On the
Red brick sidewalk
In front
Of the Bread Station Cafe

The Grove went
To the beat
Of bongos

In the street
The cabbie never
Had a chance
License expired
Men in blue
On 300 horses

The band played
“Push Come to Shove”

I thought of you
And wanted to
But the meter
Flagged red
