detail from a very large canvas - possibly by Roy Lichtenstein 

they hang

on their strings
on the screens
of their 'chariots'
parked for the day
in the heat 
of the street
down from the war 
crisis centre

the henna haired woman
reads her long book
and her wheel-chaired mother
clips her long nails
at the head
of the queue
waiting for someone
to come

the result of one count
( killing some time )

car-freshener 5
prayer-beads 4
fluffy toy 3
sunglasses 2
shell casing 1
