My name is

Freespirit, part of The Homeless Library

My name is hello thank you and goodbye
My name is many, legion
Woke up this morning not in my own bed
Half a bed it was I fell out of

Fell out across fields, over and out
Over and out to continue
Made my way here, my name is many
My name is hello thank you and goodbye.


Poem from The Homeless Library, the first history of British homelessness. Told through poems, interviews, artworks and handmade books. 

A documentary film about the project can be found here.
