"Permanent Shelter"

Cover of leaves

Tatters from pounding

Rain


Flimsy cellophane and

Cardboard walls; collapses in

Pain


A cap of newspapers

Sun

Dismal corners dashes out and

Run


Concrete cells photocopies

Of photocopies and nothing but

Battlegrounds


Roofs crashes in revealing

Sky overcast with rising

Mounds


Tired bodies cower from the

Shrieks of falling

Bombs


Hands of those who has the

Powers crushes origami paper

Forms


A box with two boards

Angled; coming together at

Peaks


The hand that builds is

Also the hand that smashes

Bricks


Rows of ice-cream planks

Cemented by crystal UHU

Glue


Just as heads on pillows lie

Premature walls; a fist crashes

Through


A yawning abyss swallows

Exclusive


Before the Gone becomes

Intrusive


Fertile land and pregnant bushes

Wonder


Why claws unearth the Never Rested from

Under
