  Refuge

enough holes
in the four walls
for insects
and odors
to ventilate

inside outside
and a roof on top
for use by all sorts

vagabonds
jobless
homeless
crime planners
snakes scorpions dogs
name it

stay and leave
at will

what one does inside
from quick copulation
to starving
is nobody's business

either be in it
or keep your distance
