Do you know what blows?

by Allen Lum

Do you know what blows?

When I step foot into a home,

but see not a home,

but a shelter,

a dwelling that was made 

through the exchange 

of a rent check, 

and not of a tender caress.

Allen Lum is a transportation planner but occasionally dabbles in poetry writing. He loves to listen to hit songs of the 90s and 2000s for inspiration to jog his creative juices. One day, Allen hopes to turn one of his poems into a Billboard top ten hit song.
