a plastic bag drifts
across the sidewalk

    that pile of leaves
    over there
    is a man.

    I've got to know a lot of homeless people, and you'd be surprised to know that one of the top international poets, Les Murray, was homeless, and quite happy to be so again if circumstances changed.

    I'm glad this is a neutral yet very atmospheric haiku.

    a radio presses
    to his head
