Poem from the Streets

Check out http://www.eyedrumperiodically.org/article/last-will-and-testament/  on Eyedrum Periodically. Based on the true story of a street couple in Pensacola who died within a few days of each other. They had saved up for a Halloween horror flick festival, enjoyed it together, and gone to sleep on their makeshift old couch covered by a tarp on a large lot earmarked for future development but still unconstructed. The next morning the man found his girlfriend lying dead beside him. A few days later, he died. Only a Good Samaritan who used to bring food and meds to the local homeless wondered what happened to the couple and discovered their sad end, then brought this tragic story to the local newspaper.
