She cut to the quick,
no blind ambiguities
A rare gal indeed

Reared on the South Side
of  a city you all know
Where rents exceed worth

A poem in my eyes,
each step a sauntering rhyme
I could not define

...just bein' Bluesy

Lori said it much better than I can, Bluesy, she always does. But I loved every stanza.

I believe we've all known this city at one time or another...they have their way with us, and then we grow bigger and better.

Whoa!  The title, alone, stopped me in my tracks ~ and the poetry did not disappoint. This is like a sublime meal prefaced with the perfect appetizer.
