Closing Home

Closing Home
By: Alejandra Berber
Newspaper Poem.



Hey cutie pie
are the first words said.
She notices next door,
three more dead.

Suffering

but in a common place.

Thomas Lauria
98 and under white sheets,
frail...
incoherent-attached.

Where to go if this is home.
95 residents,80 years, gone.
All for millions,
whats the difference.

A ten story building
and a million left untold.
