I was once asked

why do I see homeless men in doorways

in reply

I pointed to birds in a field

see how they stamp their feet

to make the worms think its raining

then come to the surface

notice they don’t simply feed

in the rain ?

notice the ducks

swim next to the island

in the lee of the wind

under branches in the dry

when all wildlife

knows to get out of the rain

why would expect

homeless men

to be less intelligent
