It Figures #31

Thick as a Brick
Lays in the sun,
Soaking the heat
Deep through layers of hardened clay.

He is an Ohio brick
With “Ohio” molded on his face.

Made in Ohio
Layed in a street in Ohio
By a WPA crew
And then rescued for a garden
In that same city,
And finally moved one more time
To a sidewalk in another place,
Still in Ohio,

This brick is not as well traveled
As some Ohio bricks.
But he doesn’t mind.
He is happy to be still
In one piece and
Thawing out
From the Ohio winter.
