Homeless: Untitled

It looks like life

If life were a bit slower.

It sounds like life

If life were a bit lower.

It feels like life

If life were a bit rougher.

It tastes like life

If life were a bit tougher.

It seems like life

Albeit a bit shattered.

It would be life

If the seeming mattered.

[ This poem was part of a Harvard protest literature project on homelessness and mental illness. ]
