Items found on the sidewalk outside my house in Manhattan

cigarette butts
cigarette boxes
coffee cups
candy wrappers
Doritos bag containing rain-soaked Dorito mush
skeleton of a rat
weeds that a woman walking by claimed you can make into an anti-cancer tea
a middle school book on cells, in Spanish
a broken wheel from a shopping cart
a poem about the struggles of the life of a convict

I think that the fact that I did not find any condoms or needles is a very positive sign for my neighborhood. I really liked the poem about being a misunderstood convict. It was written in pen on a piece of paper that looks torn from a journal. I put it on my fridge.
