Homeless Man in Little Tokyo #dtla

He tried to punch me

But I leaned away

He walked away hallucinating

Delusions of street life

Homeless homes

On the intersections of Little Tokyo

He grew more agitated as the weeks

Went by

Tapping me on the shoulder

As I ate at an outdoor patio

He kept mumbling incoherent


I couldn’t understand him

And never will

And that is the worst part:

To be misunderstood

Is a form of death.

He deserves to live.
