Treasure on the Pavement

South Melbourne
silence a block away
from Kingsway
quieter than my
country town.

Shadows and damp
promise of cluttered
warmth through
windows lit like hearths.

Blue carpet rolls
for the picking
up. I return, sling
two in my Echo's
cavern. I'll come back
tomorrow, I think

but don't. That too
is the joy of discovery
and return to worn path:
choosing no to it.
