local neighborhood blight

blight has a bad rap. poor blight.

this particular blight was home to a person for the first 6 weeks or so that i lived on christian street. the person was there, seated in that shallow doorway on the left, covered in a mountain of garbage and rags every day and every night, all day and all night. the smell was pretty overwhelming. you really had to be on the other side of the street to avoid it. then, one day, the person was gone and replaced with yellow tape, although the smell is still around. i think he or she died, but there's no way of telling if that is in fact the case, and if it is, when it was that the person died, and if it was a long time ago, why nobody thought of checking earlier, and if someone did think of checking, just how they'd go about it.

but i'm kinda glad the blight is still there. can't explain it.
