14./ Hot choclate for a broken nose. It’s all I could do.
I was in town…loads of beggars and homeless people…one guy was outside cafe Nero’s, wrapped in a sleeping bag, I went over and chatted, I think bought him a McDonald’s before now.
He looked rough, eyes red and possibly so from heroin, pupils small, nose freshly broken, from just a few moments before. Swollen and bloodied.
Someone just broke my nose he says. I agree. I suggest he goes to hospital, more for the warmth and comfort than anything. He says there’s nothing wrong, I say he has a broken nose, he says that’s nothing.
I buy him a hot chocolate. Just a bit of comfort. He has such a hard life. What can I do?
