I USED TO WRITE POEMS

I used to write poems
back when I had dreams
Back when I had a vision
back when life was a celebration.

I used to make pretty rhymes
Back in the better old times
Before the blaze that burnt
before our slum into smoke went
before poverty settled in our heart.

Now I write names
On papers, forms for evil games
names of my fellow Homeless
sending them to a government that never replies.
