i remember the bodies filthy unwashed everything accruing to them in layers of rags beaten brown bags sagging with defeat sometimes an empty bottle as still life decoration completing the sad tableaux
i remember stepping over them around them as i hurried through grand central on my way to an expensive entertainment heart heavy with pity but also with fear wondering how in the land of milk and honey so many could be disenfranchised
they cleaned out the station eventually no more reminders of what can befall the best of us the worst of us I dont know where they exiled them but next trip they were gone
the wheel has turned as it always does no longer societys ghosts the once-invisible army has returned with a vengeance too many conscripted too many to hide we know these people
destitution is an equal opportunity recruiter no longer satisfied with broken men the ranks swell with women and children with the corporate cast-offs of a world burdened with too many drones not the ones that kill but the ones who would work if work could be found
and now i once a card-carrying member of the comfortable walk the knife-edge of poverty around every corner i turn waits a deaths-head recruiter with a paper bag a shopping cart a dumpster how long before i too wear the uniform of the lost? ~ copyright 2014 RC deWinter
Hello and welcome to my portfolio; I hope the year is treating you gently.
I am a self-taught photographer and digital artist. I have been shooting photos for over 30 years and digitally painting them for nearly ten. Many pieces have been featured in both print and online journals, and five of my works were licensed by ABC-TV for use as set decor on the show "Desperate Housewives."
I am happy to paint on commission. For more information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org If you enjoy my work, please spread the word, and thank you for stopping by.
