Glen climbed the steps from under the bridge. It was morning and he was feeling stiff. Sleeping on a cardboard box did that to you.
When his wife threw him out last year he moved into a hotel. Eventually that became too expensive so he tried a shelter, but found them overcrowded. Six weeks living outdoors, he lost his job.
Now he stands on the corner with the migrant workers, hoping for a day’s pay. If he could work today, he thought, he would be able to play pool tonight. He threw his shoulders back hoping to attract a potential employer.
