I missed this. Fuck.
me too. fuck.
so did i. i almost got off the train at damen but it was already past 12 so i said screw it and rode to western. i was leaning against the bus shelter with my headphones on and reading a book while waiting for the bus on western. this homeless, 50s-ish looking african american man with cloudy heroin eyes ambled up to me. i slid off my headphones and started reaching for my cigarettes even before he asked his question. "how are you tonight? would it be possible to buy a cigarette from you?" i said i was fine and that he could have one for free. he looked at me and said "thanks. hey man, i care. i care about you man." as he walked off. i told him thanks, wished him a good night and thought the guy was a fucking nut. i went back to my book and slipped the headphones back on, the spits "she don't kare" was on. i don't think the headphones were loud enough for the guy to hear it, certainly aren't loud enough over the sound of traffic on western avenue, so i wonder- was it coincidence or a case of a junkie with hightened aural powers?
that's what was happening with me while this show was going on.
