Skate marks on the side of Gehry's Disney Concert Hall are a reason to cheer. Barricades blocking the street are a reason to jump up onto them. Smile big at the Security Guard in the neon vest, maybe he'll be amused. Or he'll say "Excuse me Ma'am?" Jump down keep walking. No loitering on this public street. Private parties only.
Below that barricade is a big water slough that doubles as a junky hangout. Skinny girl in her 20's maybe always hanging out down there. Her handbag is fancy but her clothes are rags. Shabby chic. There's a board up where the hole in the fence used to be. Did she get out before the board went up? I stood on the corner looking down at it wondering. I gave a large hairy man all in black some change when I was waiting for the light to change and he was just waiting. Maybe for change. I said "I've got some change, do you want it?" Don't assume. Dropped it in his hand and it included a dog treat by accident. He said it was okay.
