torn pages from a ditionary

although
officially labelled
homeless
he
and
his partner
doris
live beneath
the third street bridge
and
have done so
for the past
ten years
most folks
in continuously connected
corporate housing projects
the suburbs
surrounding the bridge
are aware
of this fact
which
has apparently
and
consistently
escaped
census takers
since
no one
has taken
the time
to incorporate
their numbers
into the state’s quest
for more delegates
to
meaningless political conventions
a
true sign
of their
outcast position
in society
be that
as it may
said
homeless people
have been
strongly encouraged
to find
a home
home
as defined by some
fat dude

in city hall
who
not only
has had
new solar electric
speed monitoring signs
installed on his street
but
also
has had street lines
repainted
to conform
to his version
of
eden
in any case
he had
officers of the law
assist
with the relocation
of
homeless people
unfortunately
relocation
meant
dislodge
so
once again
the solution
is
at the expense
of
those designated
as
the beneficiaries
and
of course
runs counter
to
common sense
