I struck up a conversation with “P-E-N-T-Y” in my broken Japanese and we ended up exchanging things that day: She was gifted with my black umbrella and I went home with a self-recorded cassette tape filled with her spoken-word ramblings and occasional chantings that I cannot, to this day, decipher.

Marty was lighting up a pipe when I asked if I could sit beside him and we ended up chatting very briefly. He told me it was “payday” and he’d finally be able to stay at the Washington Hotel in Vancouver’s DTES that night. (iPhone)
