blood...

first thing this morning on the way in to work...

i saw a dead body on the heating vent in front of keybank. there was a sheet over him but his head and his feet stuck out and there was blood everywhere, blood on the sheet. people were walking by as if nothing had happened but one of the women on my bus crossed herself.

what was really strange though is that there was no tape around it, no cops or ambulances. he was just lying there. i wonder if there's even any family to bury him.

i don't even know how to process this yet. i have no idea how he ended up there but i'm sure that life didn't work out the way he would have wanted it.

it's terrible
what a sad and horrible world where we are living...
I never know how to process lots of things that I found arround, and life is always so unpredictable...

one time i saw a guy who'd got hit by a car and was having a seizure. there was a huge crowd around him. you could actually see the life leaving his eyes. that was a long time ago and it still bothers me.

how to process? make sure life turns out the way you want it to.

take care of yourself.
