do you know why youre stopping people from doing what theyre doing?
how do you know its all not just one big crazy experiment?
how do you know anything?
do you know anything?
only thing i know:
i have love in my heart.
and i want you to feel it.
i promise i wont beat you over the head with my ladder.
people think xbi agents dont ever get sad but we’re people too.
in fact some things make us super sad.
for example a year and a day ago i was picking up flowers at the flower mart
which is just a few blocks away from downtowns skid row.
and i saw this man laying on the rocks by a beautiful tree.
a tree so beautiful they built the road around it.
these werent any old rocks you’d want to nap on.
in fact some would argue they were specially designed rocks so uncomfortable
that no way would you ever want to lay down on them.
anti-homeless rocks the box probably said.
but a year and a day ago that guy was laying on those terrible rocks and it all made sense
and it made me very sad.
so i took a picture so i would never forget.
and then i walked over to see if he was bleeding or dead
and when i got over him, he squinted,
and went back to sleep.
never got to see the Cubs win it all.
why wouldnt they.
they know i dont judge.
people show me things.
some things they know i dont wanna see.
its a form of communication i guess.
