the newspaper listed him
     solely
as a "52-year-old transient"
who died on the north side
near the railroad tracks
     near the place the openings
     in the railroad trestle
     got cemented and closed up recently
     to keep "transients" out
           pittsburgh city fathers
           following their political noses
           right thru election day
           throwing their weight around
           detached in their warm homes
           glutting unabashedly
           holding hands
           around the holiday table
