Dear Sheltered (Dramatic Monologue Poem)

shiver, slither, suffer brittle bone of bench bed

ring, clink, jingle bell carol rang in my head

frosty, peppery, thin, chin hair, blue sapphire jacket worn

couple’s carriage ride in central park, jimmy’s heart torn

noon strikes, cop yells, “take a hike.” Dumpster dive time

garden café serves patrons hot ginger tea with lemon lime

shops full of holiday treats, half-eaten strudel on the street

three-time divorcee, child support, alimony my sad defeat

hire me i’m qualified, i assure you, you’ll be satisfied

no address, no smart phone, on my application i lied

shower gyms, grocery store samples, come to my aid

origami is my trade, solicit strangers to get paid

single origami rose purchase today for just a dollar

treat yourself/lover we are not promised tomorrow

p.s. Jimmy the homeless guy speaks in first person to the sheltered and references to himself in third person. He creates origami flowers for extra cash which is symbolic of his kindheartedness, although he’s prejudged because of his situation (written March 16, 2016).
