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
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.
