"Permanent Shelter"

"Permanent Shelter"

Cover of leaves 

Tatters from pounding 


 Flimsy cellophane and 

 Cardboard walls; collapses in 


 A cap of newspapers 

 Burns in the glaring 


 Uncovered heads from their 

Dismal corners dashes out and 


Concrete cells photocopies 

Of photocopies and nothing but 


 Roofs crashes in revealing 

 Sky overcast with rising 


 Tired bodies cower from the 

 Shrieks of falling 


 Hands of those who has the 

Powers crushes origami paper 


A box with two boards 

Angled; coming together at 


 The hand that builds is 

 Also the hand that smashes 


 Rows of ice-cream planks 

 Cemented by crystal UHU 


 Just as heads on pillows lie 

Premature walls; a fist crashes 


A yawning abyss swallows 


Before the Gone becomes 


Fertile land and pregnant bushes 


Why claws unearth the Never Rested from
