PENSION

PENSION

On the verge of tears I wait

watching and listening to the rain

as it continues to pelt the window

where I stand


Shivering with cold, and completely alone
 
I shrink even further

into the damp, musty blanket

I have wrapped around me
 

Hungrily my fingers poke out

in their never ending search

for tiny crumbs of food

which may have escaped them yesterday
 

The few people passing by
 
do not notice me at all

and in my embarrassment

I cannot call out my needs to them


Trembling all over with hunger and cold

I can only wait patiently and hope

 that this will be the day
 
my small check is finally delivered




trash can full of garbage with flies buzzing
 around it.
