Charles

You were homeless

It was raining

We met outside a comedy club

You asked me for money

I gave you what I had,

plus a coat and umbrella for good measure.

We took a walk,

then a drive

going nowhere,

just out of the rain.

You told me a story of your days as a DJ.

The story may have been true or not,

either way it was nice to have met you

I bid you farewell

and you went off to bum a cigarette

to light the fire within.
