friend

gust of wind rips through head
And you appeared
A homeless guy was eyeing a bin
And I thought of you today

where are you, my friend?
Is a roof protecting you?
would you fight this guy, 
like so long ago?

I thought of you, today
We scuffled over half eaten burgers
Hoarded newspaper to fill the gaps
in benches and filled our boots with plastic bags
I shivered as I thought of you, today
