in Olde City


Bricks, cobblestones, streets, alleys
Demarcation, bounded, Penn
Vine to Walnut, Front to 6th
Maybe more, a cemetary once
Washington, square, Franklin, ornery
In the pens dance, hall, bell
Lip her tea, party
Declinations, retail, high-rise
Old pity, young and pretty
Stainless steel cheesesteak trailers
Free cornered mats by Betsy
Sowing, seeds of posterity
Artisan pizza, bespoke soot
Crackers, Quakers once
Conscientious, Georgian, Federal property
Tree-lined, still
In Olde City
Penn went home to England.
