Ode to DTLA Homeless

True stories of L.A. told in haikus. All events happened within 5 feet of my house and yes, I name my outdoor neighbors. Sadly, I see them more than any other neighbor living in my own building. 

"Mountain Woman" sits
Peaks and valleys of trash bags
Outside my window

"Mountain Woman" fights
With stretchy pants drunk lady
Who's gonna back down?

"Savron" screams and rides
With his arm and leg outstretched
Crazy or genius?

"Time-Machine" rides by
Clock on back, music out front
Lucas from future?

Alley hobo man
Calls out "good morning princess"
I smile and run
