HOMELESS ON KING STREET poem
by Richard L. Provencher
12/12/2008 / Poetry
Homeless on King Street
Towers of glass are monuments of
commerce to society
with national name banks and
ten or twelve floors below garbage
than an ice cream cone laying
on the sidewalk, Tim Horton cups
leapfrogging over Subway
wraps and cigarette butts that
no one seems to notice.
Stores busy with shoppers, others
home watching kids or snacking in front
of video action movies
bleak voices on the street asking
any leftover passerby,
"Change for a coffee, mister?"
Nothing much in their pockets but lint,
shoe leather worn thin. Now
begins the hustle of another day.
