The Neo-Nazi,
shaven head and
camouflage shorts.
His dirty wife beater
contrasting his
dirty black paratrooper boots.
Boots that are laced up with
clean, bright
red and white laces,
leaving no doubt that
his people alone shall
inherit the Earth.
He smokes his cigarette
and casts angry glances
through eyes squinting in the sun.
Veins showing on his arms,
beneath the india ink tattoos
that proclaim allegiance
to a failed ideology and
a splintered brotherhood.
Crosses and eagles, lightening bolts
and swastikas adorn this man
like badges of honor.
I wonder about him as
I see the leash in his hand
leading to the Chihuahua at his side.
