Laments

‘There’s no place like home’
unless your home is a canvas tent set up on pallets to keep the damp at bay,
unless your home is the cardboard strip that strips your pride away,

Homelessness attaches to it
no stigma!
how
big of ya
to say so
when you’re sat in
your show
home,
which is no place like my home.
