Rough Sleeper


Rough sleeper,
pummeled by the poor timing
of bad luck bounces;
knocked undead,
surrendered to the futile fates:
options gone,
hope gone,
faith gone,
dignity gone,
illusions shattered
into shards of turmoil
in the absence of affection
and play,
against the hardened grime
of invisibility.
