Clean Toronto Together

one by one 
tent cities dismantled 
amidst drifting snow
the mayor wears a smile
for the camera

will my bed 
be far enough away
from my neighbour’s ...
a masked old man murmurs
by the shelter entrance

inthistogerther, t o g e t h e r
facing the challenges
politicians of all stripes
at each other's throats
