GREY STREET

THOSE DESTITUTE WITH RAPED EXPRESSIONS
YESTERDAYS RAVISHED CLOTHES THE WHOLE WEEKS WARDROBE
RUFFLED HAIR RUFLED WHISKERS
RUFFIANS RUFFLED WITHOUT FEATHERS

EYES…. UNSATISFIED…… SAD
LOOKING….
LOOTING….
EYES …. LOST
WANDERING….
WONDERING….
WANTING….
EACH STEP
SLOW ..WALKING AS IF RIDDLED WITH RICKETS
SMELL OF STENCH…HUNGRY….
THREATING
HUNGOVER..

EACH LURKING THE STREETS LIKE RUN-AWAY CHILDREN
LOST MEN AND WOMEN LIKE ABANDONED PUPPIES
POOR SOULS SUFFERING SOULS
THY WHOM SPEAK IN TONGUES

HARSH URBAN SOUNDS FROM STREET WORN FACES
SORRY SCENT OF SWEAT LINGERS…
’TIS PART OF THE MAKEUP
LIKE ALLEY CATS SPRAY
PERSONAL
D I S T I N C T I V E.
