Check the neatness

of the homeless

under Glebe rail bridge –

to each their own arch

open plan, plein air

here a brushed tent

a swag-bed rolled

camp bed made

cardboard pantry

wardrobe trolley.

Minimilists

before their time.

A ragman’s bike

a spirit cooker …

what’s to declutter?

what forsake?

 

Arty bastards.

 

         yes

        even

     the gravel

looks Zen raked.

 

You’re tidy shamed

by a pair of shoes

in the spick & span sun

a’bask in the arch

so sweetly arrayed.

The dirty mercy

of house proud poverty

don’t need no maid.
