the SW's 11 of 12 given words:
whiskey dangling smashing glass street sari
lantern dandelions subway bakery made

a bottle of whiskey left dangling
at sunset a signal for a smashing time
readying them for a session of drinking
a group of the homeless set to dine

sitting in the street atop a spread-out sari
glass clinking was music to their ears
a lantern turned bright yellow dandelions fiery
could provide joy even with no beers

rumblings in the subway not a bother
empty talks enlivened them and held sway
while a bakery sent loaves made to order
could they be faulted for a raucous day

  1. Sunsets really portend darkness. A good one Hank.

  2. If there were possibly a party on a sari for the homeless, I would not begrudge the whiskey and bear! But when dandelion yellow is in the sky, and a bakery delivers, who cares whether the drink arrives?

  3. The images work so well to highlight the sense of hunger and exhaustion at the end of the day. :)

  4. Sure lots to long for at the end of the day, or sometimes beginning if it wasn't gotten at the end.

  5. What a real, crystal clear snapshot of an evening!
    Loved this bit: "a lantern turned bright yellow dandelions fiery/could provide joy even with no beers".
