    Tom Brody, how you fall behind
    and lag in front of honest men
    who plod the dusty vagrant trail
    from town to town in hope of work
    who ply the land for meat and bread.

    And none will break the shuffle bowed
    surrender of three feet ahead
    or pray gray runes of gravel stone
    but husband spit within dry mouths
    and fixate on three feet ahead.

    The waif with blood wept on her thigh
    the young boy, porting plate and cup
    the wife despaired of threadbare miles
    who fixates on one meal ahead
    a thousand times they pass you by.

    Tom Brody, you have overslept
    and in the weight of summer's haze
    gay finches squabble in the stream
    squirrels - staccato up the ribs
    to nibble acorns from the trees.

    And none who knew the vagrant days
    recall your face or know your name.
