Another Mirage

The dark lives of the homeless

I thought the homeless man was a mirage
He stopped at the crosswalk, almost transparent
He had ripped boots and matted hair
His pants shredded; his face sun-brown and soiled

He joins the list of those who move into darkness
People that seem like optical illusions
Clinging to distorted…
