HOMELESS

HOMELESS

24/05/2021 Slået fra Af Jari Dolberg
A voice came roaring through the clouds
with news of the loss of a dear old friend
You packed up your cardboard box home
and put your HOMELESS sign up for rent

Washed your face and a well tailored
jacket in a dark river stream
and in a dumpster you found a pair of
less worn shoes, polished them with spit
 
In a hasty trot you walked the busy streets
passing people going about their business
looking all too stressed as if they were
walking along their parallel selves
 
They all seemed successful and important
brighter and well spoken as they
mumbled words no one understood
talking to invisible people in a headset
 
You ran faster caught an open train wagon
on your way to somewhere
a friend had died alone
to say a last farewell and I will see you soon
