the shelter


i went to a shelter

a shelter of

Christmas

children stare

didn’t greet

but adults said hello

and that was it

paintings are hung

baskets and

boxes of shoes

i quietly stroll

through the long hall

and too many families

walking

carrying stuff

oh i stood

sat

waiting

thinking of nothing

though i felt this

unfamiliar loudness…….

Good work Kai!
I think your last line..."though I felt this unfamilar loudness" is very good!
