Street Dogs


Skinny street dog leashed to the seven-year old school girl wearing Toughskins from Sears shipped in from another country some thousand miles away seated on the front steps of a Seventh Day Adventist Church located on south Second Street while her sweating brother scratches and skates by on a cart missing a wheel recently retrieved from the landfill located in their neighborhood while she plays with the sixteen spent oyster shells and plastic bags that he brought her all spread out on the sectioned sidewalk leading into the building where all people that enter give glory to God for His overabundance of blessings.
