"Another Day" by Homeless

 

Another day, 

 

unsanitary & unchosen, 

 

left to the quiet devices

of self-consolation 

as all the beautiful people 

of the world hold conversations 

while stripping naked

& getting into bed together.

 

I feel just like a sewer rat 

who tied a tiny "Get Well Soon!" 

balloon around one of its legs

 

only to drop dead seconds later.
