OUR LONELY CHRISTMAS TREE

It was Christmas time again. 2015

In Poocketz tradition I panhandled and was given a beautiful 6 foot tree by a kind owner of a tree-lot. He strapped the tree on top of my car and I drove away thankfully and triumphantly. I found antique ornaments in Good Will. Several of our young men helped erect the tree on the dunes.  The open trunk of my car held trays of snacks, it was our buffet.  We had a feeling of warmth and and belonging.

The next morning we found the tree vandalized and demolished…….AND SO goes the life of a homeless man.
