Excerpt from the Diary of a Homeless Man

A woman walked past me today, laughing. I laughed too. She didn't seem to see me sitting there on the sidewalk, and I don't know what was so funny. But it felt good to communicate.

Yay, nice to see/hear/read you! Short & sweet! The structure is interesting because it could go either way on that last word and completely change the mood. Could have felt good to smile, laugh, or just see someone else laughing. Equally the last word could have been one to compact loneliness, solitude and alienation. Or maybe i am just projecting my ideas of homelessness? Not sure, but i like it :)

The picture is really good too! Did you take it?

The story told here is really compelling. The story not told here is even more compelling. Awesome job!

If that is you in the picture, I'm certainly humbled and I have to ask ... Who took your picture?

Please, don't take offence but I've used your photo in a music video. I have made no profit from your situation and only pray, in my humble way, that something good has come your way. I see your scars and I only bare witness.

I have put a credit link back to here on my video and I can only hope I have given expression to what your photo so clearly screams at an uncaring world.

I would never pass you by and I would never do so in whatever place or whatever remove of time and space that I surely meet myself.

You are in my video on you tube under the search name "jimi kent" on a song called "Consequence Street" if you think it should be removed then you have my email address but if you listen then you would know my intentions are honourable. Jimi
