POVERTY – Yolanda

POVERTY – Yolanda

Yolanda….
HaiYan….
November 8th

Dark
Furious Rain
But far from the eye of the storm
Friday, November 8th

Umbrella blowing sideways
Cat like eyes inside the drawer of a garbage bin
So it seemed at first glace.
But wrong
I was…

A child
A boy
Maybe age ten
Soaking wet
Dirty
Trampling black plastic bags
For food
For items of worth
For money

No storm for him
Work as usual

Poverty
A reality of urban life 2013 in Metro Manila
