ICE COLD WATER MAN

One Dollar, One Dollar!
The coldest water in the city...DOCUMENTED!

The red, white and blue clad vendor
hollers his cadence.

8 bottles a day
keeps the doctor away!

One bottle of MY water and you can run 10 more! he yells as a trio of joggers pass.

"U.S. Vet, Please Help"
states the faded marker cardboard sign
Silent, he sits on an overturned white bucket
head down.

Water Guy strolls over
Talks gently for a bit
Shakes the Vet's hand
and passes him a folded wad of bills
Before quietly walking back
to his ice cold cooler
and beginning his litany again.

My pen takes it all in.
