Drawn with a tiny broken graphite fragment, so where the lines landed was a bit random...

street fragments

The bookstall at 'the g' .

The other half of the page went with Jesse 'the golem' James who stopped so I could 'show him', and give him the meaning of everything,  licking his lips, and hacking left and right on the footpath as he raved, his concrete scraped knuckles clenching into a puny fist.

 I gave him back him a quick sketch of narrow forehead, deepset eyes,  blood caked mouth and chin, and moved him along

King Street

Motorcycles and Icicles

The Icecream motorcycles and a ute outside Gelatomassi on King St Newtown, 
There were so many buskers on the street last night, But no-one had any money. Then one of the apostles came and borrowed what I had.

But even rhythmic gymnastic hulahoop girl didn't seem to make any money, so I can't complain

A few late night icicles from the night before
