The Domiciliary (Dom) is an integral part of the VA Hospital located at
Bay Pines, Florida. This temporary residence (domiciliary) serves as host for homeless
veterans that come from different regions of the country. All of them
receive treatment for different psychological and physical conditions.
Drug dependence, alcoholism, and combat trauma are the constant struggle
for a high percentage of these war participants. Cocaine is main enemy
in this battle and Mrs. Laverne Feaster (Dom Director) leads the fight
against this formidable adversary.
The Dom (To kill a Flower)
Don’t tell mama
When you are in pain
Against the wall
White roses fall,
The darkest hour
The blinds are closed
Close the gates,
and feel…the power!
