A Homeless Man Window Shopping

I travelled on the bus
this morning
and out the window
I saw
a homeless man

in all hopelessness
that only dirt and grime
can describe
was window shopping
for what I cannot remember.

Staring at a basket of goods
that he would never carry
and like a child outside a candy shop
with awe and wonder
he found

what he was looking for –
hope.
