“Affordable Cleaning”: Father and Sun

Holds integrity in his sigh

He had red clay dust on his hands

Oil under his finger

His baby with a cough

On the side of the road

Collected in the shade

Constructing signs for day labor

In permit markings he writes . . .  “Affordable Cleaning”

Searching for an employer who doesn’t prefer machines

Over humans and their solar children
