Title: Fly Away Home
Description: A small child narrates the facts of his homeless existence—sleeping sitting up, washing in the restroom and, above all, avoiding being noticed. The brief text runs through all his emotions from a matter-of-fact acceptance to a fierce longing that makes him angry at those who have homes.
