the ugliness of things at eye level

I watched the cops
roll a homeless person
there was a little tent
in the woods
behind Arco
2 squad cars
a few cops
to roll
an old lady
on crutches

she looked fresh
her clothes were clean
her grey hair short cropped
these assholes
with their 30 year fixed mortgages
their two new cars
their 2.5 children
rolling this old woman
who hit hard times
quite recently
I hope they can sleep well tonight
in their memory foam mattresses
at least this old lady
will get 3 hots and a cot

I couldn’t watch
I looked up
seeing the needles of the pine trees
pine cones
sky w/ few clouds
