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.
