Let There Be Respite


Comes November rain.
Streets. Doorways. Sidewalks.

Hepatitis A.
Danger there (and here). Allwhere.
Who serves and protects?

Death by exposure.
Where do all the homeless go?
Here? There? Over Where?

Human need unmet.
The homeless. No one speaks for.
Here, There, Anywhere.

Houses worth millions.
Pennies house homeless in tents.
Here, There, Everywhere.

There is a There, Here.
Is will here? Then way is There.
Let There Be Respite.
