Thin, Exercise, Serious

Downtown Dialog

In the 2-min. walk from Five Points Station to my doorstep, this is what confronted me:

1. "M'am, do you have any kind of can of food for me to eat? Anything at all?" (crazy street person, normally talks to self)

2. "JESUSSSSSSSSSS! Lord help me!" (sung by random man)

3. "Moses, You Ain't Right" (graffiti on light post)

4. "Do you need help carrying that?" (old man with cane)

5. "M'am, need s'hep? I's happy to hep!" (another street person)

I feel there's a song or poem in the making here. At the very least, sound-sampling would be interesting.
