demons and saints


Next I see the town drunk shuffling along the side of the road

in his slippers and old coat and it’s 80 degrees out. And

there’s the damn predictable cigarette dangling from his

unshaven face and he’s got on these ridiculous looking yellow

headphones. Obviously, he’s off in his own little world

with its own special demons and saints, clouds and rivers, shadows

and gusts of wind and I think how this could be me.
