Tuesday’s Picture: Junkyard for Lost Souls

In the quiet corner of the city

Next to a vacant building 

Where people sleep for free

Two men and a dog

On top of a junkyard 

Sleeping with one eye open

Dreams turned to a heap of trash

Sunlight blinds the unfortunate 

Surrounded by privileged strangers 

Silver and gold, driving a brand new Mercedes

While neglected souls with broken keepsakes

Are target practice for the crows

A wheelchair, a couple of tattered blankets

An itchy dog


A makeshift home for wounded hearts.
