transient window shopping
Just saw the movie The Woman in Black yesterday and I guess that affected my reading of your post. A bit gothic.

thanks Francisco
It doesn't matter where I am in the world. There's just something that tweaks me when I see a homeless soul window shopping when their worldly goods are stuffed in a shopping cart. It just seems so ... oh .. I don't know .... ironic?

Food for Thought

It would upset me if it was a food shop and they were drooling over the goods.......

Half the stuff I look at in shop windows.... I cant afford.....

On the other hand I have in the past also passed cafe's and eating houses when I have had no money to actually go in...... breath deeply.....and dream

Very well done!

There was this fascinating documentary about homeless folks racing shopping carts down dangerous hills around North Vancouver. I guess everyone wants to be a road warrior. Scary stuff for the likes of me.

I want to read the poem about you coming upon a homeless, road-warrior, shopping cart race.
