  1. resting lightly
    on the thatched hut
    gold poplar leaves

    bathed in moonlight
    Hansel and Gretel
    holding hands

    stray cat
    even the bag lady
    shoo's

    the poacher
    nets a fish
    cold moon

    guitar case open
    the busker shows
    a hint of silver

  2. dad's old grey pants
    the tabby cat
    legging from the old dog

  3. luxury hotel
    a wretched shanty rests
    in its shadow

  4. old lady's laugh
    bellows from
    the shabby bungalow
    drowning out the ring
    of my iphone 4

  5. feet shuffle
    in the queue
    yesterday's bread

  6. In the mall
    fishing for bottles
    the old man
    his back-lit hair
    like a halo, glowing
