.7 stand by me

Stand by me- The din of the homeless man outside

Strumming his out of tune guitar

singing pop songs of decades past. 

Four years I’ve passed him,

Four years I’ve heard him sing the same songs. 

REM, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan. 

All songs filled with such warmth. 

Even a man with nothing can produce these sounds of warmth. 

A bittersweet image.
