One Safe Place

You are mentally disabled.
You can keep in your mind one safe spot:
the doorway of a local church where you have slept for years.
One Sunday morning a member is there to clean up
and wakes you by screaming in your hear to leave.
You scream back and threaten them.
The police are called and you go to jail.

After jail, you return to the doorway.
Then you return to jail.
This cycle continues for months.
No one calls to get you into a home.
