Poet’s Portion

In My Town

In my town we have some churches.

Buildings with roofs and automatic heating/ cooling systems,
keeping inside warm and dry

When it’s snowing outside, like today.

All day and night, every day, warm and dry inside.

While People walk by, every day, looking for someplace safe to stay, especially when winter storms.

The Churches are empty nearly all the time.

No safe places here.
