Through frost's biting
cold Go-Bus passengers stare
at heaps of sleeping
bags on the sidewalk, zippers open
for quick dives into warmth.
We pray those vagabond
warriors are filling up at soup
kitchens, even chasing a few loonies
corner of Yonge and Bloor--
or visiting the friendly benches
at City Hall Square.
Soon, evening's chill will
remind the homeless, their cloth
of comfort awaits to flee
this bath of winter.
