22 October: Walk

AI digital art: homeless man in doorway


I suppose if I went outside
and walked around, somewhere
in town like on that street where
all the shops are closed down,
where men with heavy stubble
and droopy lazy eyes sleep in
doorways, and the women claim
the opposite side of the street,
two of them sharing a sleeping bag
because everyone who’s been
a Scout knows the buddy system,
and I suppose if I went outside
and walked around town a bit
I’d have something to write about.

  2. Inside might be easier, but there’s something to be said for the outdoors inspiration. I thought you might dig this: http://star82review.com/1.1/Ron_Charlie.html
