The Way In Gary Buller Leroy Tyrell’s mood descended as the lift slowly carried him to the fourth floor. Something had been niggling him from the moment he exited his car that morning, the distinct feeling that something wasn’t right.

I returned home from a hard day of begging for change. A bottle of cheap whiskey cost $6.99 from the corner liquor store. An old cigar off the sidewalk completed my needs for the day. The cheap piece of crap burned my throat, but kept my lungs full of warm smoke. It rained shit, icy stuff that clings to your jacket and pants, and … Continue reading Homeless – John W. Twilley
