berkeley, ca.

i discovered this on the moss covered concrete wall adjacent to a space recently vacated by a homeless man who spent a few days calling the dingy corridor between apartment buildings home. his distinguishing characteristic was that he had many small plastic canisters of paint in addition to his various belongings. i still wonder if it was he who painted this and left it as a lonely memento among the decaying leaves. it was gone several days later and it saddens me to think that someone may have simply thrown it in the trash.

i figure it would be nice for someone to remember.
