Stepping Over the Homeless Man on the Way to the Theater

I know why the homeless man sleeps

so early in the evening

there he is at eight o’clock asleep on the sidewalk

as theatergoers walk around him to catch the raising of the curtain

of a show they will see

like the dream the homeless man dreams

taking him from his tortured reality

filled with the lack of humanity

and later the theatergoer exits the theater humming the play’s theme song

as the homeless man awakes to his foot brushing past his nose.
