The Shoeshine Guy at Midway Airport

 Sits in a wheelchair one of the Southwest employees accidentally left behind.

 “Shoeshine 5 dollars.
Shoeshine $5,”, he sing-songs.
To my clogged ears it sounds like Suicide $5

 I sit at one of the Wi-fi Stations
And scarf down a Superdawg “Whatyamatcallit” and fries
The box has drawing of the happy hot dog couple
The girl in tutu
The boy hot dog imitates Hercules.

 My flight to LA leaves in half an hour.
I don’t want to leave.
Watching the hometown greens, golds and reds of the trees
Do their deep autumn blush
Swept me back
Into the womb.

 Sometimes you just want to start over.
