mini-advent*

not the cathedral

nor a crowded shopping street

with lights that barely

remember their origin:

a lone woman who

lightens the load of

the city’s homeless**

*respectful mis-appropriation of a term – a blogger friend’s reference to Japanese mini seasons

** cheers to MLR, a fb friend who doesn’t know me yet, I almost bumped into last night in front of the station at a mini-demo demanding affordable housing for all; see http://www.hik-koeln.org/: – to be precise, a 3-night sleep-out in solidarity with those who don’t have a choice
