Paying Rent While Homeless


only adding to the stagnant urine

this is supposed to be a home

not just a house

 

the murky brownish yellow

and the most repugnant smell

unknown pain

 

sore genitalia generating fear

strangers disrespecting hallways

no wonder it holds restless souls

 

this should be a home

but it never can be

not with these occupants

  1. ‘Paying rent while homeless,’ kept haunting me all day, the photo too. Keep writing even if ‘trying.’ You’re trying me, I need it. Thank you.
