Ahhrg! My Foot!

There are minefields in the city.

urban snapshots in monochrome : shard


the edges glint coldly
in the morning light
it will cut the soles
         of little feet
like razors

shard of glass
lies in ambush on
children's playground

panda,
those rubber coverings/tiles in the playgrounds are flammable?

i haven't seen one up in flames yet, but have seen those said tiles singed, probably by lighted candles left by playing kids.
