As of 9 am, today’s offerings in the “Rooms for Rent” section of free listings here included not one room for rent. 

This poet found only workers, the disabled, seniors, single parents, and indeed whole families seeking reasonably priced accommodation, however inadequate.

California has extended its eviction prohibition until January of the new year.

How long can we keep fooling ourselves?

How long until we begin to work for, instead of against, one another?

How long will it be until we stop despising those who have become the first victims of our failing systems, and begin to reform our expectations of those systems, and of one another, instead?…
