i've become acquainted with a young homeless guy in my neighborhood. brian writes poetry and posts up around the city with a cardboard sign that reads, "adopt me ladies, i'll be your pet poet." but in real life he's not that cheesy. to the contrary. he's so bright and grounded and on a feel level with the city that i've never known. it's my nature to worry about things that don't feel right. so i do, about him. i've asked if he feels safe. i've asked if he's warm enough and if he is happy. yes. yes. and yes. really? yes.
