Jane's poem for today!

Jane is staying in a hotel and missing home. Here is her poem.




Day breaks.

There are many lives under the roof of this old building.

Water and heat plunge through its arteries.

Footsteps hurry down a fire escape, though nothing is burning.

The bed is bottomless.

 The linens whiter than the hands of laundry ladies.


Those who live here, do not sleep here.

Those who sleep here can’t hear the stories in the walls.
