October: Bay’s Day’s Christmas trees
a disease frays
December’s almost here!

worn on the edge:
the homeless man’s denim frays
busking to endear
a meal from a passerby
or a Bay’s Days puppeteer

a grey sky
with what should be white in his eyes
guitar in lap premature demise
he leans against the bright rectangle of windowpane
a backrest behind which the Bay’s Day’s Christmas trees remain
the puppeteer’s remedy exchange
