 SEEDS OF GROWTH by Pam

HOMELESS



HOMELESS

A slingshot cracks the creatures skull
spirals down
stopped by upward ground
right across the railroad tracks

toothless smile
beneath a soily sailors cap
old seedy pea coat
weather-whipped and time-torn
hangs upon old, bony torso
laceless sole-shoddy shoes
scuff across steel rails
to claim his meal;
feathers plucked and (cached)
toward a some day pillow yield

roasted jay bird
on a crafted maple stick
over open flames

the wait stretched out the scent
and starving dogs charged shamelessly!
