Poetic Thoughts - Love is (54th and College) - by C.W. Pruitt II
posted: Mar. 17, 2017

Poetic Thoughts header

There is an altogether unworldly vibe at 54th and College - it seems to be a magnet for beautiful people. It also seems to bring out the best in people. I have lived in a lot of places, but no place has ever affected me in this way - not even close. Here is a poem about that vibe:

Love is
a powerful
thing.
It is a
common thing
for radiant
Souls to get
sucked into
this vortex
at 54th and College.
When
Modern Times Urban Truck Stop
was open
countless people
drove there
for no apparent
reason.
And when
they arrived
they found
a new sense
of home.
(The word 'Heaven'
came up often there.)
When MT closed,
we soon learned
what a great experience
it was to drink coffee
and spend time
at CATH and Cornerstone.
Today - on a good day
You can find me
sippin sodas at
Northside News Cafe.
They have many
sandwiches and
many magazines.
Come by and check
it out sometime.
We can always
benefit
from another
beautiful person
in this part
of the World.
(But beware -
you just might
get sucked in!)
