  • Grotesque Faces

    I know you.
    You eat the loaves,
    and leave the crumbs,
    you give them change,
    then call them bums.

    I know you.
    You shook their hands
    when first did meet,
    but now they come,
    you cross the street.

    I know you.
    You laughed,
    and nodded your head,
    at every epithet they said.

    I know you.
    In
    deep
    dark places,
    your multitude
    of grotesque faces.

    DWAYNE - your verse is thought provoking, affirming, challenging, and beautiful - all at the same time. Excellent verse, poet.

                  Saying a lot, with few words and no punches barred. That's what poetry can do... nicely writ!

                    Wow, I wrote something about the homeless but you summed it up strongly in very few words.
