Jennifer Lagier- A Poem & Photo


Among eucalyptus, empty dunes,
the homeless lie motionless,
wrapped in newspaper, rags,
untethered human driftwood
washed ashore,
unwanted detritus.

Sun rises.
Joggers, bicyclists
pass unmoving mounds
beneath ragged blankets.
Leashed dogs lift their legs,
mark half-empty booze bottles,
filthy back packs,
society’s editorial comment.

Jennifer Lagier is an aging child of the 60's with an affinity for both snakes and coyotes.
