Let There Be Respite

 

Comes November rain.
HERE/THERE WITHER/WHERE? IN/OUT?
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.

—JP Massar
