A coincidence perhaps

for him to look into one of the cities gaps

where the weak draw smoke for heaven

while their minds and bodies collapse.

 

A place where trash is placed to lay

where dumpster and backdoor meet decay

where rats tear through food with dogs who've run astray.

 

But in the silent tumult of that place

was something covered in moist bags

all but its face.

So as he peeked on in with quickened pace

he met how men can become a disgrace.

 

He heard a crinkle in the pile

screaming beasts by which he riled 

he stared upon that which is vile

a body that has been defiled.
