JB Lacaden’s Picture Choice: 2

Title: The Lights

He wrapped it
Around the pole's
Narrow body.
He stepped back into his
Of cardboard and
Broken dreams.
John, the cat,
Purred at him
At it snuggled beside his
Homeless Mike
Watched snow
Fall all around him.
He could feel himself
Slipping away.
The cold pulling him
As his eyes
Dropped to a close,
He thought he saw
The lights
Come to life.
Homeless Mike
Before giving himself
