More than a roof

Looking


We know it.

 

From the way they talk to us,

From the way they make us wait.

 

From the way they say,

We’ve got nothing in your budget,

Though we saw something in our budget on the website.

 

From the way they ask,

What kind of food do you cook?

What do you cook your food in?

 

From the way they tell us,

The landlord will make the decision.

 

We will be good tenants.

We will be very careful, make no mistakes,

because we are walking towards our Permanent Residence.

 

But we know we will not get this house.

 

S Nisha

    More than a roof is about housing. 

     

    It’s about nostalgia, anger, contentment, longing, fear and much more. It brings together voices from across the spectrum – from those with no homes, those in emergency accommodation, in caravans, in cars, on boats, in rentals, or in their own houses.

     

    Drawing together well-known writers and first-time poets, it’s a unique and timely collection.
