this homeless man,

was on the corner on on the I17 and dunlap.

joe and i were leaving barnes & nobles
and saw him on our way to school.

we always try to give what we can but there's always doubt in the back of my mind about what they'd do with the money.... drugs, alcohol... so i always try to give food. the only thing i had on me was my 2/3 full 20 ounce bottle of Bolthouse Farm berry juice. the homeless man took it along with joe's dollar. he took a sip while we waited for the light to turn green and we could read his lips say, "that's damn good."

why was he standing there with his cart and worn out clothes? why was he homeless? why wasn't anyone helping him?
