Night hunt

In the night
when the city sleeps
from his ramshackle chamber
out he creeps
to embark upon
a hunt of hope
in pursuit of fortune
into the darkness that awaits him
with familiar faces
of fellow hunters and gatherers
all struggling in similar distress
all scanning piles of garbage
for what people left over
or discarded
that day.
