John Doe, drowned.

He liked his books, I guess.
Among the waterbound, the paperbacks
‘The Greatest Batman Stories’;
a faceless Thomas More’s Utopia,
property of West Glamorgan County Council.
His words on cardboard:’Sleeping rough, thank you’;
a black sleeping bag; his London
Shopper. So many letters, yet
no name, only the Queen’s head
glinting in pound sterling.
