Homeless Servant Less Than
I am a dirty demographic.
The frog in the hand of a young boy testing his powers
I am the lump of feather-bones on a pine needle floor
poked at by eight-year-olds with a stick
A mermaid with a black eye
A mountain goat with a bad foot
A blind Colossus walking the street
A Hermes on a flat-tire bike
I am homeless
I will always be with you
I am broken never to be fixed.
