October Unplaceables



17th Oct, a sign says: “No feeding of Dogs/Cats/Birds”.

no feeding here:
still, the tissue woman lumbers,
hawking unhindered.


20th Oct, seven routes to chose from.

the strays forced into silence,
no cabs prowl,
beaten children go quiet,

their surrogates exhausted,
kettle fires snuffed out,
no smell of skin

clings. October skyline keeps
its shape, regardless,
you must go somewhere.
