Bernard

elbows on knees
head down, sleeping
or is it just resting?
contemplating

gazing, staring
at pavement below
thinking, listening
pondering

divorced, separated,
unplanned
brought here
just circumstance

feeling invisible,
feet passing by
voices amplify
solitary existence

picks up bag
strides away
head held high
homeless still proud

Bernard.
