street smarts before streets

i swept the floors then 
sat down to read
checked my phone 
got a glass of water 
did the dishes

body against land
land against water
the slightest change in pace
direction or 
composition

they were out there
always

looking for the weak one
side-eyed
running desperate 
within a herd

survival depended on
having street
smarts before
and after
streets
