Mere Image

I sit on sidewalk
hand out
hungry
gaunt
still
watching well clothed groins
hips
asses pass
their eyes averted
purses closed
wallets clutched
change clenched in unforgiving fist
afraid to see
me as mirror
of coming future
current failure

Gaunt – foto from Internet, artist unknown

Written as a poetry challenge for Blackbird’s MySpace blog which showed a foto of a hollow-cheeked man sitting on a city sidewalk with his hat out asking for help. Great foto, lousy situation; from the style of the dresses and hat, I’d say the foto’s from the 1930s. (foto just above).
